Nuthshell: Quickest NetBox install for Demo or Production(recommended that you tweak slightly for production).

This repository houses the components needed to build NetBox using Vagrant and VirtualBox. It is a work in progress; please submit a bug report for any issues you encounter.

Vagrant Getting Started - Quick setup requires installing VirtualBox and Vagrant (selected your supported OS in the links below).

  • VirtualBox - You can replace with other virtual platforms. See Vagrant Getting Started above.
  • Vagrant


To get NetBox up and running:

  1. Install Virtual Platform & Vagrant (if not installed already)
  2. Clone netbox-vagrant git repo # git clone . or just download both Vagrantfile & and place in the directory you want to launch vagrant from.
  3. Navigate to local repo directory & start vagrant # vagrant up
  4. Log into VM (optional) # vagrant ssh
  5. Play with Netbox demo in browser of choice http://netbox.localhost:8080 (Admin credentials use "admin" for userid and password - can be changed & credentials do not have quotes)
  6. (Optional) NAPALM Config, Email Config, LDAP


The normal NetBox upgrade process can be followed using the instructions to Clone the Git Repository (latest master release).

Netbox Configuration Used

The NetBox installation process is followed leveraging:

  • VM Memory: 2048 (edit Vagrantfile if you would like to change)
  • VM CPUs: 1 (edit Vagrantfile if you would like to change)
  • Ubuntu Xenial64 (updated)
  • Python 3 (deprecated python2)
  • GIT - Cloning the Netbox latest master release from github (as opposed to downloading a tar of a particular release)
  • Ngnix (deprecated Apache)


  • Netbox/Django superuser account is admin with a password admin and an email of (can be changed after startup)
  • SECRET_KEY is randomly generated using
  • Postgres DB is setup using account is "nebox" with a password "J5brHrAXFLQSif0K" and the database "netbox" using the default port (all without quotes and can be changed after startup)
  • Forwarded Ports - to add additional VM access / port forwarding (ssh, remote psql, etc)
  • Vagrant Credentials - to understand credentials used for vagrant / Ubuntu VM


You can’t perform that action at this time.
