UPDATE: IPv6 load balancer endpoints are now GA.1 However, we continue to work on instance-level v6 addressing. Since I believe that at least some votes on this issue are for v6 all the way to the instance, I am leaving this issue open.Harry Sileoni commented
+1 for instance level IPv6!
Thanks, we’re looking into enabling console support.Harry Sileoni shared this idea ·
The cross-posted issue on our agent github project is updated to note that this is planned for a future release.
Interesting idea, we’ll consider it – thanks!
Based on a small number of customer requests, I am moving this from Declined to Under Review so we can accept further votes and feedback on whether some kind of “undelete” would be valuable.
We’ve just released a feature to GA which allows you to detach and re-attach boot disks to GCE VMs.
Using this feature, you may now restore a VM from snapshot by:
1. Stopping the instance – (e.g. gcloud compute instances stop INSTANCE_NAME —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)
2. Detaching the boot disk from the VM in question ($ gcloud compute instances detach-disk INSTANCE_NAME —disk DISK_NAME —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)
2. Creating a disk from the snapshot in question
3. Attaching the disk from step 2 to the VM as the boot disk ($ gcloud compute instances attach-disk INSTANCE_NAME —disk NEW_DISK_NAME —boot —zone INSTANCE_ZONE)
After restore, the VM will keep its IP address and other properties (e.g. tags, labels, etc.).
See more info about the feature in the docs:
Down the road, we’re also planning to improve this flow to be “one-click easy.” More updates to come.
Hi folks, we know there is a ton of interest in this ability, and our engineering team is working on enabling it. We don’t have specific schedule updates right now, but I wanted to post an update acknowledging that we definitely agree this is an important ability and we will launch the functionality just as soon as we can!
