How to use this box with Vagrant:

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.box = "cirillialberto/Centos9stream-aarch64"
  config.vm.box_version = "0.1.0"
end
vagrant init cirillialberto/Centos9stream-aarch64 \
  --box-version 0.1.0
vagrant up

This version was created about 1 year ago.

With this image i'm able to rum almost all the examples from https://github.com/geerlingguy/ansible-vagrant-examples and https://github.com/geerlingguy/ansible-for-devops . It is possible to define multiple VMs with static IP and connectivity between VMs. With this configuration i define two network adapters. One "internal" for vagrant and one "public"

For example this Vagrantfile is the one i use for the 3 nodes kubernetes cluster

VAGRANTFILE_API_VERSION = "2"

# Define two VMs with static private IP addresses.

boxes = [
{ :name => "kube1",
  :ssh_port => "60022",

  :mem => "4G",
