Hey all – we’re excited to announce the public beta for renaming a VM. You can try it out by running:
$ gcloud beta compute instances set-name CURRENT_NAME —zone=ZONE —new-name=NEW_NAME
For this first version, you’ll need to stop the VM before you rename it.
More details at the docs here: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/rename-instance
As always, feedback welcome. We’re working on GA’ing this feature soon, which will include adding support in the Developer Console UI.AL supported this idea ·

Really? Can we please have this ASAP? Going through 4-5 steps (Snapshot, clone, settings...) to do this is ridiculous and error prone when working with multiple instances!
