Difference between vagrant and vagrant d directories

0 votes

What's the difference between .vagrant and .vagrant.d directories and the private_key and insecure_private_key stored in the respective directories?

C:\Users\username**.vagrant**\machines\default\virtualbox\private_key

C:\Users\username**.vagrant.d**\insecure_private_key

This was not stated in the docs and couldn't find it anywhere else either.

All your system-wide settings for your downloaded vagrant boxes are stored in .vagrant.d directory which is placed in your home directory.

.vagrant on the other hand is in you environment/project directory and holds individual projects settings i.e. your current VM settings. Whenever you create and execute a vagrantfile, a .vagrant directory is created with VM specific data.

The .vagrant.d/insecre_private_key is the default insecure private key to use your VM(s). It's replaced by vagrant on first VM start with private_key from project's .vagrant directory. In your example: private_key for default VM started with virtualbox provider.
