Unfortunately I don't have any vmware products to test this with. We generally use the opensource stuff as there is no cost to experiment, KVM and virtualbox etc. Perhaps someone else on the community has experimented with the VMware plugin for Vagrant.

I did a quick google search for your issue and came across this response... have you tried this procedure? -->

Also consider upgrading to vagrant v1.9.7 which is the most recent version I've tested with for other hypervisors.
