Vagrant is unable to find Parallels provider

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac Home Edition

Symptoms

vagrant up has been finished successfully, but after that all subsequent commands like vagrant ssh, vagrant halt are failed with an error:

The provider 'Parallels' could not be found, but was requested to back the machine 'default'. Please use a provider that exists.

Cause

It’s a known issue of Vagrant on OS X.

It might happens you have typed the provider name incorrectly, for example, like that:

vagrant up --provider=Parallels

In this case Vagrant creates a data directory .vagrant/machines/default/Parallels which will not be removed completely even after Vagrant failure or virtual machine destroy.

Resolution

Rename a Vagrant machine’s data directory to the lower case: from “Parallels” to “parallels”, for example:

mv .vagrant/machines/default/Parallels .vagrant/machines/default/parallels
