Vagrant Hyper-V Gen 2 Centos 7.4 - 1708 AMD 64

This is a Hyper-V generation 2 box with GPT partitioning and nested virtualization. It includes Git, Ansible, and Chef. SELinux and firewall services are disabled by default.

A group called local is in the Ansible inventory file /etc/ansible/hosts to be used for local provisioning. As of v22.3.2018, usage of the root user for provisioning is optional. The password for the root user is vagrant and the infamous insecure_private_key is in /root/.ssh/authorized_keys.

You can run Ansible locally on Windows hosts using the shell provisioner with config.ssh.username = "root" specified in the Vagrantfile.
