Using vagrant-hostmanager with centos/7

25 Oct 2016 in TIL

I've been trying to use vagrant-hostmanager on a project that requires the machines to have public IP addresses. To make this work with vagrant-hostmanager I needed to write a custom resolver and add it to my Vagrantfile (see #63). This resolver is adapted from the issue and updated to use ip addr as ifconfig isn't installed by default

config.hostmanager.ip_resolver = proc do |machine|
result = ""
machine.communicate.execute("ip addr | grep 'dynamic eth1'") do |type, data|
result << data if type == :stdout
end
(ip = /inet (\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+)/.match(result)) && ip[1]
end
