    How do you even create one of the free VMs?
    I can only see VM.Standard2.1, VM.Standard2.2, VM.Standard.E2.1 and VM.Standard.E2.2 which have way more resources than the free ones.

    Edit: It finally appeared

    Haha, thats not funny.

    Really? ... and no the keyword is not "Hello".
    Its more like the phrase I used, since multiple attempts with Hello before failed.

  • How long does it take to "activate" the account? I've received the initial email saying that they are reviewing my account, yesterday..

    Got it activated in like 5 minutes.

  • So they have my data (including credit card), and left me nowhere. Great.

  • I've created a 50GB block volume (that's the minimal size system allows me) but when I try to attach it to VM system warns that my volume isn't s part of 'always free tier'....

    I only have 1 VM up so wondering what's wrong. Their chat wasn't helpful they sent me to another team that was offline.
    Has anyone managed to attach a block volume under free tier limits?

  • I can't even create a free VM. It always shows me "Out of host capacity."

    Either they were overrun with new signups or they had very little spare hardware for the free tier VMs and want people to buy the higher priced ones. No matter what, this gives a bad impression.

    Please always say which DC you tried and got this.

    Lol, it's free!

    Anyone having trouble opening ports in their firewall? I opened ports in the Security List tied to my instance. It worked, but when I rebooted the instance, I can no longer connect to those ports. Can't complain too much, though...it's free. I guess I will try Oracle support.

    Edit: Nevermind, I added:

    -A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport <MYPORT#> -j ACCEPT

    to /etc/iptables/rules.v4 to enable the port and it worked. Apparently UFW can cause issues with Oracle Instances.

    Start an auction if you think your personal details are worth much to anyone, I'm sure there'll be a bidding war.

  • Worked good for me in Canada. Free teir vps didn't display initially but worked fine after reloging

  • I'm lucky to have 2 instances in Germany.

    Does anyone know how to reinstall an instance ? Or does one need to delete one and create a new one (with the risk of having another IP address or getting an "out of capacity" message) ?

    Also: anyone tried to install Windows on such a machine ? Not sure it is supported in the "always free" tier though...
