DigitalOcean as Vagrant Provider from Windows

  • Posted August 15, 2013

Hi,

Has anyone had any luck running DigitalOcean as Vagrant Provider from Windows? Appears an error occurs just after rsync triggers…

INFO warden: Calling action: #VagrantPlugins::DigitalOcean::Actions::SyncFolders:0x364f590 INFO interface: info: Rsyncing folder: C:/digiOceanTest/ => /vagrant… [default] Rsyncing folder: C:/digiOceanTest/ => /vagrant… INFO ssh: Execute: mkdir -p /vagrant (sudo=true) INFO ssh: Execute: chown -R root /vagrant (sudo=true) INFO subprocess: Starting process: [“rsync”, “–verbose”, “–archive”, “-z”, “–delete”, “-e”, “ssh -p 22 -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -i ‘C:/digiOcean_rsa’”, “C:/digiOceanTest/”, “root@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:/vagrant”] ERROR warden: Error occurred: Unknown error (Windows says “The operation completed successfully.”, but it did not.) INFO warden: Beginning recovery process… INFO warden: Recovery complete. …

My guess would be an issue with path format, but wondered if anyone has encountered this before?

Thanks, A.

I was having similar problems and fixed it by installing the older 1.2.7 version of Vagrant

Try installing the ruby-dev package – does that fix it?

What process did you follow (or, what steps did you take) to reach the point where you encountered these errors?
