Metasploitable3 : Error exporting VM post-processor failed: no space left on device

Metasploitable3 has been around for quite a while and has been used by professionals, students, and researchers alike to improve their skillset. This has improved a great deal over the previous generation Metasploitable2. With new exploits were coming out out every day, the community needed something more where you dont get satisfied with straight-forward to play environment to get a high privileged shell.

I tried building this automatically several times as posted on Github , but it failed mostly when vagrant uses up the /tmp space (where i allocated ~1.5GB).

If you face this issue, replace the instruction posted in the manual install section at step 2 with
$ TMPDIR = /var/tmp packer build windows_2008_r2.json
and continue with the rest of the steps. It takes around 10-15 minutes to finish and once ready , you are greeted with

As this is a trial license of Windows Server 2008 R2 , you may want to read the wiki page for Windows Product key and Tips and Tricks for building a persistent VM.

I shall be writing a Metasploitable3 walkthrough soon. Your feedback is welcome.
