UPDATE after clarification of question
You should be able to login as
user: vagrant password: vagrant
This is a convention described in the base box creation documentation:
Also, even though Vagrant uses key-based authentication by default, it
is a general convention to set the password for the “vagrant” user to
“vagrant”. This lets people login as that user manually if they need
If you have a box where the password for the vagrant user is not set (or you just don’t know it) you can do the following:
me@somebox$ vagrant ssh vagrant@vagrant-ubuntu-trusty-64:~$ sudo passwd vagrant Enter new UNIX password: <type invisible new password here> Retype new UNIX password: <re-type invisible new password here> passwd: password updated successfully
Now you can login e.g. through the VirtualBox GUI.
Original answer (basically explaining that you should not have to do the above)
The basic idea is, that you do not have to use the Virtual machine providers tools for anything to work with vagrant. So as soon as you think you have to use the VirtualBox GUI you are doing something wrong.
Just try in terminal (or in cmd.exe if you are on windows):
me@somebox$ vagrant init ubuntu/trusty64 me@somebox$ vagrant up me@somebox$ vagrant ssh vagrant@vagrant-ubuntu-trusty-64:~$
If everything works you should be on the command line inside your new machine logged in as the user vagrant.
