Vagrant up Error: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying…[How to Solve]

Vagrant under windows reports an error, always prompting Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying…, and there is no shared folder after running, depressed…

Find information online, visit forums, and finally have a solution, at least it works, post it and share it.

No nonsense, here is the error code and solution:

Local environment win7, vagrant version 1.8.5, virtualbox version 5.0.4

vagrant box add centos71 vagrant-centos-7.1.box

vagrant init centos71

29 The guest machine entered an invalid state while waiting for it
30 to boot. Valid states are 'starting, running'. The machine is in th
31 'paused' state. Please verify everything is configured
32 properly and try again.
33 
34 If the provider you're using has a GUI that comes with it,
35 it is often helpful to open that and watch the machine, since the
36 GUI often has more helpful error messages than Vagrant can retrieve
37 For example, if you're using VirtualBox, run `vagrant up` while the
38 VirtualBox GUI is open.
39 
40 The primary issue for this error is that the provider you're using
41 is not properly configured. This is very rarely a Vagrant issue.

 

Solution:

 4 # All Vagrant configuration is done below. The "2" in Vagrant.configure
 5 # configures the configuration version (we support older styles for
 6 # backwards compatibility). Please don't change it unless you know what
 7 # you're doing.

10   # The most common configuration options are documented and commented below.
11   # For a complete reference, please see the online documentation at
12   # https://docs.vagrantup.com.
13 
14   # Every Vagrant development environment requires a box. You can search for
15   # boxes at https://atlas.hashicorp.com/search.
16   config.vm.box = "centos71"
17   
18   config.vm.boot_timeout = 360
19   config.ssh.username = "vagrant"
20   config.ssh.password = "vagrant"
21 
22   # Disable automatic box update checking. If you disable this, then
23   # boxes will only be checked for updates when the user runs
24   # `vagrant box outdated`. This is not recommended.
25   # config.vm.box_check_update = false
26 
27   # Create a forwarded port mapping which allows access to a specific port
28   # within the machine from a port on the host machine. In the example below,
29   # accessing "localhost:8080" will access port 80 on the guest machine.
30   # config.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 80, host: 8080
31 
32   # Create a private network, which allows host-only access to the machine
33   # using a specific IP.
34   # config.vm.network "private_network", ip: "192.168.33.10"
35 
36   # Create a public network, which generally matched to bridged network.
37   # Bridged networks make the machine appear as another physical device on
38   # your network.
39   # config.vm.network "public_network"
40 
41   # Share an additional folder to the guest VM. The first argument is
42   # the path on the host to the actual folder. The second argument is
43   # the path on the guest to mount the folder. And the optional third
44   # argument is a set of non-required options.
45   # config.vm.synced_folder "../data", "/vagrant_data"
46 
47   # Provider-specific configuration so you can fine-tune various
48   # backing providers for Vagrant. These expose provider-specific options.
49   # Example for VirtualBox:
50   #
51   # config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb|
52   #   # Display the VirtualBox GUI when booting the machine
53   #   vb.gui = true
54   #
55   #   # Customize the amount of memory on the VM:
56   #   vb.memory = "1024"
57   # end
58   #
59   # View the documentation for the provider you are using for more
60   # information on available options.
61 
62   # Define a Vagrant Push strategy for pushing to Atlas. Other push strategies
63   # such as FTP and Heroku are also available. See the documentation at
64   # https://docs.vagrantup.com/v2/push/atlas.html for more information.
65   # config.push.define "atlas" do |push|
66   #   push.app = "YOUR_ATLAS_USERNAME/YOUR_APPLICATION_NAME"
67   # end
68 
69   # Enable provisioning with a shell script. Additional provisioners such as
70   # Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Salt, and Docker are also available. Please see the
71   # documentation for more information about their specific syntax and use.
72   # config.vm.provision "shell", inline: <<-SHELL
73   #   apt-get update
74   #   apt-get install -y apache2
75   # SHELL
76 end

 

Two lines of code are added to the Vagrantfile configuration file, using clear text username and password

config.ssh.username = “vagrant”
config.ssh.password = “vagrant”

save

vagrant reload

done!

Well done and Good Luck!
