Im trying to get a vagrant virtualbox vmware/photon up and running but the most basic Vagrantfile emits an error.

    Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
      config.vm.box = "vmware/photon" 
      config.vm.box_version = "4.0.2"
    end
Path: <provider config: virtualbox>
Line number: 19
Message: NameError: undefined local variable or method `override' for main:Object

        override.vbguest.no_install = true

One thing I tried was to set the override variable

Vagrant.configure("2") do |override, config|

But then a full callstack is thrown:

D:/HashiCorp/Vagrant/embedded/gems/gems/vagrant-2.3.7/lib/vagrant/config/v2/loader.rb:37:in `load': can't convert Vagrant::Config::V2::Root to Array (Vagrant::Config::V2::Root#to_ary gives Vagrant::Config::V2::DummyConfig) (TypeError)

How do we get photonos up and running with vagrant and virtualbox?

Day later I figured it out

The Vagrantfile from the photon box itself has a syntax error if you have vbguest additions already installed.

~/.vagrant.d/boxes/vmware-VAGRANTSLASH-photon/4.0.2/virtualbox/Vagrantfile

  config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |v|
    if Vagrant.has_plugin?("vagrant-vbguest")
        override.vbguest.no_install = true
    end

The error is emitted when override is used on no_install = true.

undefined local variable or method `override' for main:Object

changing the provider to

config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |v, override|

fixed it
