Vagrant 1.8.5 – public key problem

If you like to create with kitchen a new Vagrant instance with the Vagrant version 1.8.5 you get the following problem:

           default: Vagrant insecure key detected. Vagrant will automatically replace
           default: this with a newly generated keypair for better security.
           default:
           default: Inserting generated public key within guest...
           default: Removing insecure key from the guest if it's present...
           default: Key inserted! Disconnecting and reconnecting using new SSH key...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...
           default: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying...

To fix this, you should create this file:

vi .vagrant.d/Vagrantfile

With the content:

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.ssh.insert_key = false
end
