Vagrant 1.7 in GUI Mode with VirtualBox

Came across a Vagrant issue where the VM boots up in GUI Mode ( vb.gui=true ) and the host wouldn’t connect via ssh.  Vagrant would retry until the connection failed.  The GUI would come-up of the box.

The answer I found was login into the GUI console

run as root “dhclient”

Man on dhclient

Oracle 12.1.0.2 Database install with Vagrant on Centos 6.5 (Jellema and Biemond)

Based upon Edwon Biemonds work:

https://github.com/biemond/biemond-oradb

This leverages Edwin Biemonds repos’s so bug fixes might be there.  The only issue I had was taking out the X libraries in db.pp in the manifests directory.

===> ‘libXext’ and ‘libXtst’

These are not needed anymore.

Total install time after downloading binaries from Oracle.

==> db12102: Notice: Finished catalog run in 1376.77 seconds or 22 Minutes.

Not bad!
