I'm new to Parallels but not new to Vagrant. I'm having trouble connecting to a box when doing vagrant up. Here is what I have: MacPro 2016 High Sierra 10.13.2 Parallels 13.3.0 (43321) Vagrant 2.0.3 The Parallels installation is mostly untouched _except_ I changed the Host-Only and Shared networks via Preferences to use 192.168.10.0 and 192.168.11.0 networks, respectively, and turn off DHCP for both IPv4/v6 on both. Here is my Vagrantfile: Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.vm.box = "centos-7.3" config.vm.provider "parallels" do |prl, override| override.vm.box = "parallels/centos-7.3" override.vm.box_version = "1.0.0" prl.memory = 4096 prl.cpus = 2 prl.name = 'vagrant-spark' # put the following in based on Parallels Forum Vagrant thread prl.customize ["set", :id, "--device-set", "net0", "--mac", "00:1c:42:26:1d:f1"] config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 22, host: 2200 end config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb, override| override.vm.box = "bento/centos-7.3" vb.memory = 4096 vb.cpus = 2 vb.hostname = 'vagrant-spark' end config.ssh.insert_key = false config.ssh.forward_agent = true config.vm.define 'vagrant-spark' do |h| # h.ssh.guest_port = 2200 # h.vm.network "private_network", ip: "192.168.10.10" # h.vm.network :forwarded_port, guest: 22, host: 2200, auto_correct: true end config.vm.provision "ansible" do |ansible| ansible.verbose = "v" ansible.playbook = "vagrant-setup.yml" ansible.inventory_path = "hosts" ansible.skip_tags = nil ansible.tags = nil ansible.raw_arguments =  end end When I issue the command vagrant up --no-provision --provider=parallels I get the following output: Bringing machine 'vagrant-spark' up with 'parallels' provider... ==> vagrant-spark: Registering VM image from the base box 'parallels/centos-7.3'... ==> vagrant-spark: Cloning new virtual machine... ==> vagrant-spark: Unregistering the box VM image... ==> vagrant-spark: Setting the default configuration for VM... ==> vagrant-spark: Checking if box 'parallels/centos-7.3' is up to date... ==> vagrant-spark: Setting the name of the VM: vagrant-spark ==> vagrant-spark: Preparing network interfaces based on configuration... vagrant-spark: Adapter 0: shared ==> vagrant-spark: Clearing any previously set network interfaces... ==> vagrant-spark: Forwarding ports... vagrant-spark: 22 => 2200 ==> vagrant-spark: Running 'pre-boot' VM customizations... ==> vagrant-spark: Booting VM... ==> vagrant-spark: Waiting for machine to boot. This may take a few minutes... vagrant-spark: SSH address: 192.168.11.10:22 vagrant-spark: SSH username: vagrant vagrant-spark: SSH auth method: private key vagrant-spark: Warning: Host appears down. Retrying... So Vagrant is unable to reach the guest machine. The IP address doesn't ping from the command line, so it seems that the network isn't bridged to the Mac network even though that option is set in the Parallels Preferences for the network. The other issue is that the Parallels provider plugin docs say that a private network connection will be to the host only network but this doesn't seem to be the case - it always goes to the Shared Network. The only way I could get setting the IP address to work against _some_ network was based on a thread in this forum; it seems that the documentation doesn't match what's really going on... Anyway, I probably just need a small nudge in the right direction to close the gap here - any suggestions welcome!!
