Rex::Box::VBox - Rex/Boxes VirtualBox Module


This is a Rex/Boxes module to use VirtualBox VMs.


To use this module inside your Rexfile you can use the following commands. use Rex::Commands::Box; set box => "VBox"; task "prepare_box", sub { box { my ($box) = @_; $box->name("mybox"); $box->url(""); $box->network(1 => { type => "nat", }); $box->network(1 => { type => "bridged", bridge => "eth0", }); $box->forward_port(ssh => [2222, 22]); $box->share_folder(myhome => "/home/myuser"); $box->auth( user => "root", password => "box", ); $box->setup("setup_task"); }; }; If you want to use a YAML file you can use the following template. type: VBox vms: vmone: url: forward_port: ssh: - 2222 - 22 share_folder: myhome: /home/myhome setup: setup_task And then you can use it the following way in your Rexfile. use Rex::Commands::Box init_file => "file.yml"; task "prepare_vms", sub { boxes "init"; };


It is also possible to run VirtualBox in headless mode. This only works on Linux and MacOS. If you want to do this you can use the following option at the top of your Rexfile. set box_options => { headless => TRUE };
