Introduction

This is part three of Building a Networking Virtual Lab. Vagrant can be used to build a Virtial lab on top of KVM/Libvirt

Step 1 Vagrant CentOS packages to install

Install the latest Vagrant rpm from https://releases.hashicorp.com/vagrant/
yum install -y https://releases.hashicorp.com/vagrant/2.1.2/vagrant_2.1.2_x86_64.rpm

Install required packages for Vagrant
yum install -y rubygem-nokogiri gcc ruby-devel zlib-devel libvirt-devel

Check Vagrant is installed
vagrant --version

Step 2 Install Vagrant plugins

Install plugins for Vagrant
vagrant plugin install vagrant-libvirt
vagrant plugin install vagrant-mutate

Step 3 Test Vagrant is working

Add a Vagrant box for testing
vagrant box add centos/7 --provider=libvirt

Make a directory for testing Vagrant
mkdir test
cd test/

Create new Vagrant file
vagrant init centos/7

Bring the VM up
vagrant up

Check status is running
vagrant status

ssh to test the Vagrant image is working
vagrant ssh
exit

Destroy the Vagrant image after you have confirmed Vagrant is working
vagrant destroy

Remove the test directory
cd ..
rm -rf test

Step 4 Add other boxes to your Lab

You can add any image from the publicly Vagrant cloud to your lab. you can find them at the link below
https://app.vagrantup.com/boxes/search

If you can't find a image on the Vagrant cloud you can also make your own images from VMs that you have created.

You should now have Vagrant running on KVM/Libvirt.
