Re-establishing reference from Vagrant to VirtualBox VM

Stress in the middle to demo preparation: Vagrant refused to bring up my suspended VMs. The message is wrote:

D:GitHubbiemond-orawls-vagrant-12.1.3-infra-soa>vagrant resume soa2admin2
==> soa2admin2: VM not created. Moving on…

After some Googling I discovered that the link between Vagrant and my VM consists of a the file called “id” in the subfolder


This file contains nothing but UUID used by VirtualBox to identify the VM.

Unfortunately, this file was missing (not sure why).
