If you are a Mac user who likes the feeling of deleting stuff and have drunken the docker inc. kool-aid (i.e. implementing microservice architecures on top of the “docker-toolbox”) this just might mean a breath of fresh air for you as well:
trash your “favourite” hypervisor (vmware, virtualbox, etc) with it
learn about the existence of the lean xhyve built on top of Apple’s own hypervisor framework (only on OSX 10.10+)
I’m having this problem with my local dev ceph cluster where the clocks on all my nodes would get heavily skewed after a while so rather than researching what’s going on here with virtualbox I just hit the problem with the unix hammer. So, were the guest tools installed? I don’t even know nor care.
Virtualbox is usually not my first choice with vagrant but https://github.com/ceph/ceph-ansible didn’t work out of the box with the vmware-fusion provider so I’m sticking with it for now.
I recently ran into a problem with a compile-on-filesystem-change application on boot2docker. Due to the layered structure of boot2docker (Host->VM->docker) the mechanics required for inotify are not working.
