The Vagrant VMware provider is used just like any other provider. Please read the general basic usage page for providers.

The value to use for the --provider flag is vmware_desktop. For compatibility with older versions of the plugin, vmware_fusion can be used for VMware Fusion, and vmware_workstation for VMware Workstation.

The Vagrant VMware provider does not support parallel execution at this time. Specifying the --parallel option will have no effect.

To get started, create a new Vagrantfile that points to a VMware box:

# vagrant init hashicorp/precise64
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.box = "hashicorp/precise64"

Then run:

$ vagrant up --provider vmware_desktop

This will download and bring up a new VMware Fusion/Workstation virtual machine in Vagrant.
