Vagrant with Docker support installation

To use Vagrant with Docker, you need to install the vagrant and docker packages:

$ sudo dnf install vagrant docker

And start docker service:

$ sudo systemctl start docker

Vagrant itself comes with the support for Docker baked-in. By installing Docker alongside Vagrant you can start using Docker both as a provider and as a provisioner. Please refer to the official documentation for more.

Note: All Vagrant commands have to be ran as root (e.g. with sudo). This is similar to running Docker commands directly.

Using Docker as a default

To use Docker provider with any Vagrant commands, one has to explicitly append --provider=docker.

To avoid this, you can set the default provider for your project in the beginning of your Vagrantfile as:

# Vagrantfile

Or set it for your environment with:


Using Docker from Vagrant without password prompts

To use Vagrant with Docker without password prompts it is enough to add yourself to the docker group. This will make docker commands password-less as well.

To do so, type:

$ sudo groupadd docker && sudo gpasswd -a ${USER} docker && sudo systemctl restart docker
$ newgrp docker

Above commands will create the group docker and add current user to this group. This user also need to have administrator privileges.

Note: This has security implications, read about this in the official docs.
