Vagrant

For testing purposes, I have added a Vagrantfile in this repository.

This is tested with the following setup:

  • Windows 10, Version 1909 (Probably any OS compatible with Vagrant v2.1.5 and VirtualBox v5.2.36 should work.)

  • Vagrant v2.1.5:

    choco install vagrant --version=2.1.5
  • VirtualBox v5.2.36:

    choco install virtualbox --version=5.2.36
  • StefanScherer/windows_2016 box based on his packer templates.

  • Run vagrant up to boot the Vagrant box.

Additional notes

  • If required, put your packages in the packages folder.
  • The contents of this directory will be copied to c:\temp
  • The contents of the packages folder will be available in c:\packages

vbr_all.ps1 Vagrant only (Full VBR PoC setup)

  • Put a license file inside the packages folder.
  • In the settings.ps1 file:
    • Change $vbr_licenseFile to 'c:\packages\myfile.lic'
    • Change $vbr_sqlServer to 'VAGRANT\SQLEXPRESS'
    • Change $vbr_username to 'vagrant'
    • Change $vbr_password to 'vagrant'

After you have installed these packages, you can continue with step 2 above.

vone_all.ps1 Vagrant only (Full VONE PoC setup)

  • Put a license file inside the packages folder.
  • In the settings.ps1 file:
    • Change $vone_vcSelectedType to 2 (skip the virtual infrastructure configuration)
    • Change $vone_backupAddLater to 1 (skip the add of VBR to VONE)
    • Change $vone_licenseFile to 'c:\packages\myfile.lic'
    • Change $vone_sqlServer to 'VAGRANT\SQLEXPRESS'
    • Change $vone_username to 'vagrant'
    • Change $vone_password to 'vagrant'

After you have installed these packages, you can continue with step 2 above.
