Hello. My name is Jasmine Jackson and our courses intro to vagrant. And in this lesson, we will learn how to halt a vagrant machine. Let's get started.
00:12
So and this lesson are learning objectives are
00:16
halting and how it relates to a vagrant machine and pros and cons of, of halting of a great machine. So what exactly is halting? And how does it relate to favoring?
00:30
Well, when you halt a vagrant machine, it gracefully shuts down and powered downs the machine. So the command we will use is vagrant halt.
00:43
And when we want to reboot the machine, we will enter the command vagrant up.
00:50
So the pro of halting a machine is it allows for the machine to cleanly shut down and preserve the contents. On said machine, a con of halting a machine is it takes extra time to start
01:07
from a cold boot, and it will consume a lot of disk space.
01:11
So,
01:12
uh, analogy of halting a vagrant machine is
01:19
on windows when you shut down the machine. So when you shut down and windows, what happens is the Windows operating system will shut down your machine and power off,
01:33
and the content on the machine on your machine are saved and where you want to resume working on your machine, you would start your machine or
01:46
boot your machine
01:48
so you can think of halting in the same vein as shutting down your machine and windows. So now we have a quick quiz.
01:57
True or false? When haunting a vagrant machine, the machine will gracefully shut down. Is that true? Or is that false? I will give you a couple of seconds and then I will show you the answer. Let's start now, and the answer is but proper birth.
02:16
True,
02:19
when we halt a vagrant machine, the machine, remember, will gracefully shut down and then power off your machine. So the answer is true. Yes, when halting a machine of a great machine, the VM will gracefully shut down
02:38
so
02:38
and summary
02:40
today we discussed halting and how it relates to a vagrant machine and pros and cons of halting of a great machine.
02:50
Now we have an end of lesson quiz,
02:53
true or false? One haunting a vagrant machine. The contents on the machines are not preserved. Is that true? Or is that false? I will give you a couple of seconds. And then I will come back with the answer. Let's start now.
03:09
And the answer is
03:13
false.
03:14
Remember when haunting a vagrant machine. The contents are preserved on your machine as well as the machine gracefully shutting down. So this answer is false.
03:28
So in our next video, I will be showing a demo of how to halt a machine and then restart the machine. Remember, we are using the vagrant machine bamboo to trustee 64 that works in virtual box.
03:46
So I can't wait to see you in the next video. Have a good day
