    This item is unfortunately very old. From the video, it seems that there is not much time allowed between creating the instance and trying to ping it. A Windows instance can take several minutes to boot, perhaps that his the issue. But you also report that you “changed IP and DNS” but not clear if that means on your setup outside GCP or something else. Commonly network problems like these are caused by customer-side issues like firewall or filtering rules in their own network, preventing connection to GCP.

    If this is still an active issue, please consider posting on a forum like the gce-discussion Google Group, we have support engineers there on a regular basis who can assist you further.

  3. Instance Doesnt boot correctly, hangs on - “a start job is running for LSB: Raise network Interface..”

    My VM was shutdown due to end of Trial. However i have since made payment and started other instances.
    GCE UI shows this system as successfully booted, however looking at the serial port it shows the following (see image)
    Any ideas how to fix this ?

  4. Cannot use port 587, 465, 2525 and 25 for SMTP email using SendGrid and Postfix in Debian

    I have configured SendGrid but it cannot be done. I cannot open ports 587, 465, 2525 and 25 which is I think needed for SendGrid to be working fine using Google Cloud Instance.

    Hi, this forum is only meant for feature requests, and you are filing a technical support issue. Please visit the gce-discussion Google Group or other forums dedicated to Sendgrid to get more support for this configuration question. Note that ports 465 and 587 are both supported as outgoing ports. GCE does not allow 2525 or 25 outbound at this time.

    This appears to be an old support request, but there is not enough information here to help with, and the youtube video no longer exists. Please try posting on the gce-discussion google group if you still need help with this issue.

  7. A hundred claps !

    A hundred claps to Google for sending recommendations for Google Compute instances... Recommendations for upgrading performance but also recommendations to save money.

    We don't encounter such companies every day, at least here in Cameroon!

    Please file a more detailed request, it’s unclear what you’re asking for. If you mean that you want these types of stats displayed in the GCE control panel, that might be difficult, as GCE does not “inspect” what is happening inside the VM, so we don’t really know how much of these resources is used vs. free (only the guest operating system knows that accurately).

  13. I am unable to connect to my instance from the Console

    When I try to connect to my instance from console (https://console.cloud.google.com/compute/instances?project=adesignaward-20141121&graph=GCE_CPU&duration=PT1H) , I get first: Transferring SSH keys to the VM and then Connection Failed
    An error occurred while communicating with the SSH server. Check the server and the network configuration. Our domain has become offline, the CPU utilisation shows 0%, and our domain no longer accepts connections. FTP Server also does not work, it seems our instance became non-responsive however we are unable to recover this in any way. Also it is not possible to get in touch to request help.

    Sorry for the delay, I’m assuming you have moved past this issue one way or another. In the future, you might want to try our serial console access feature, which allows you to interact with a VM’s boot menu. You may also find more customer support people in the gce-discussion Google Group who can help suggest things to try for situations like this.

  14. startup-script is suddenly not run anymore.

    The following simple two-liner in the "startup-script" property is suddenly not running anymore from newly created instance templates:

    systemctl daemon-reload
    systemctl enable --now some.service

    The Go binary creating these instance templates didn't change since months. So I guess this is related to a defect or change on Google side.

    I’m sorry, but we aren’t able to provide individualized customer support in this forum. Please post to StackOverflow or the gce-discussion Google Group if you need help with a specific issue (it sounds like you’re speaking about an error message, but it’s not clear what the problem is that you’re describing).

    I’m sorry, but there’s really not such a thing as a “Taiwan IP.” It is possible to register with ARIN the general location of use for an IP, however Google does not do this. We have a large number of IP blocks, and we do not maintain geographical bindings for our IPs. IPs from Google instances are assigned a Google IP. This does not mean traffic from the machine is being routed back through the US, it will typically exit our global WAN through the most efficient route to a Google edge POP.

  17. Hello, I noticed that there is no access to the machine

    Hello, I noticed that there is no access to the machine from some types of addresses, or rather from some regions.

    80.245.118.224 - 80.245.118.239
    Why?

    Hello, from Google Translate, it seems you are asking for help with a password issue with a server VM you have created. I’m sorry, but this UserVoice forum is for feature requests only, we are unable to interact 1:1 with users for tech support. Please review cloud.google.com/support to review your options for getting technical support (Stackoverflow, gce-discussion Google Group, or filing cases if you have a support contract).
