    Anyone knows how to "reinstall" the instance? I'm afraid losing the availability if I terminate and recreate the instance

    Create non-trial instance, detach boot volume from both instances, attach new boot volume to free instance, terminate new instance.

    Tested?

    Obviously he didn't test it, you can't replace boot volume with the new one.

    Attach as data volume, dd, then re-attach as boot volume.

    Too complicated. Any easier method? 😂

    So that block storage goes towards the always free VMs? Cause i was apparently using 47gigs of it already after creating a VM which means that if i get a second VM i'll have 6gigs of block storage left, so much for my porn collection dreams -_-

    So I spent about a half hour figuring this one out.

    So by default their image boot volumes are 46.7GB in size. If you use up 2 of the free VMS, you are at 93.4GB of space. The boot volumes are considered against your block volume storage quota of 100GB. OK - so create a 6.6GB block volume then? Wrong, only can create them at minimum 50GB. So, custom size the block volume lower than 46.7GB then? Wrong, the minimum size is 46GB. So essentially it is one VM and block storage or two VMs and no block storage.

    Seems like the free instance VM.Standard.E2.1.Micro is not available in Switzerland for some reason (at least, this is what I read on a forum).

    I managed to roll out a free instance there a week ago so they were definitely available. Might just be out of stock now.

    Thanks for the feedback! How is a user supposed to know that they are out of stock if they don't write it though?

    By the way, Oracle's customer service is awful: they closed the chat three times while I was still speaking and trying to figure out what to do...

    Be sure to check out the other ADs in the region. For example I can only spin up the micro instance in AD 2, though by default it selects AD 1.

    And yeah their support is absolutely useless. I spent a couple weeks talking to support trying to verify that they don't charge for DNS zones. At the end they had an engineer inform me that they in fact do, which is wrong, they don't.

    There's only AD 1 in Zurich!

    Yesterday I wasted almost 1 hour to figure out how to open a ticket with support. They had me subscribe to an ancient site and then asked for some code I had never heard. I finally just decided I won't bother.

    I really wanted those sweet free VPSs :(

    This was a fun one too! You need to create a new account on support.oracle.com. From there, it will then (should) auto associate the email from your Cloud account to that one. They are looking for a support identifier number. Once you have an account and the support entitlements are associated, you can find this in support.oracle.com under your email address in "My Account" as support identifier.

    BUT, also keep in mind that this is valid only during the first 30 days (with your trial credits). Afterwards, support is rendered only via the Forums.

    I've spent a handful of time working all this out. With this said, these instances make good apps for me. I was able to move something from ArubaIT to Oracle since I have granular controls over the VNIC/VPC and can have stateless firewall rules applied, as stipulated by how important ACL is to this app.

    I couldn't even have 1 VM + 1 block volume. I created 50gb block volume but got a warning when attempted to attach it to VM (saying that setup wasn't going to be part of free tier) so I deleted it - they later deducted few cents from my promo credit for creating the volume. .

    (See last reply on page #2).

    Thanked by 1receivedthanks
  • @daxterfellowes Yup, i remember seeing those limits when i played with it. Didn't pay much attention tho as i'm not interested in this much storage on my VMs. I'd rather have some more processing power as the thing is slow as hell. That 60 CPU steal is somewhat cute tho when installing updates for 30 minutes...

    Did you chose Switzerland as your "Home Region" during signup? The Micro VMs quota is provided only in the region you chose at that time, not in others.

    See the print:

    Thanked by 1receivedthanks
  • dfroedfroe Member, Provider

    @Norris, can you access your nginx via public IP from outside Oracle Cloud?

    Since the VMs only have a private IP, the public IP is routed to some kind of router where the destination IP is NAT'ed to the private IP. That might work more or less if you try it from the machine itself (cf. hairpin NAT).

    If you for some reason need to connect to the public IP from the machine itself, you may assign the public IP (/32 mask) as an additional IP to your machine's virtual ethernet interface. Then connections to the private IP (which includes the NAT'ed requests from outside) and from the machine itself to its public IP should work.

    /etc/network/interfaces

    auto ens3
    iface ens3 inet static
            address 10.0.2.123/24
            gateway 10.0.2.1
    iface ens3 inet static
            address [publicIP]/32

    I do not need to access the public ip on the machine internally, I did it just to demonstrate the problem.
