Packer Windoze Windows Server 2012 R2


This is an image based on the evaluation ISO supplied by Microsoft. It has all the updates available for the host at the time applied and comes ready to be run by Vagrant. When Vagrant starts the box, sysprep will automatically run and create a brand new Windows instance with WinRM up and running.

Details on how to connect are;

  • username: vagrant
  • password: vagrant
  • connector: winrm

Included programs (versions dependent on the Windows version);

Other configurations from the standard image;

  • WinRM HTTP and HTTPS listener with Basic and CredSSP enabled
  • Win32-OpenSSH v0.0.23.0 - Except on Server 2008 SP2 images
  • Default Administrator account disabled, password is also vagrant
  • Hidden files and folders and file extensions are shown by default


See packer-windoze for more info

  • Vagrantfile template is now associated with each image
  • Sysprep is now run before the image is created saving time when starting up a box
  • Evaluation is rearmed after image is started to get the full trial
  • Removed the SSL HTTPS certificate created during the Packer build as it is redundant after that
  • Install Win32-OpenSSH and set to start that when the image is created, this is not done with Server 2008 SP2 as it does not work on this version
  • Installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions in the image
  • Added Vim to the list of installed programs so the core image is more useful
