vagrant destroy [name|id]
This command stops the running machine Vagrant is managing and destroys all resources that were created during the machine creation process. After running this command, your computer should be left at a clean state, as if you never created the guest machine in the first place.
For linux-based guests, Vagrant uses the
shutdown command to gracefully terminate the machine. Due to the varying nature of operating systems, the
shutdown command may exist at many different locations in the guest's
$PATH. It is the guest machine's responsibility to properly populate the
$PATH with directory containing the
--force- Do not ask for confirmation before destroying.
--[no-]parallel- Destroys multiple machines in parallel if the provider supports it. Please consult the provider documentation to see if this feature is supported.
destroycommand does not remove a box that may have been installed on your computer during
vagrant up. Thus, even if you run
vagrant destroy, the box installed in the system will still be present on the hard drive. To return your computer to the state as it was before
vagrant upcommand, you need to use
vagrant box remove.

vagrant box removecommand.
