Hands On Lab – Working with Custom Images on Google Compute Engine

Just some feedback on this hands on lab. I had a number of issues with it, but thankfully I was able to work through it. Posting this so anyone else running into issues knows how to get past it, and hopefully so ACG will update the lab.

You can see in the video the demonstrator has set Cloud Shell to the project that has the two VM instances we are working on. This is shown by the project name in yellow text in brackets.

However the video doesn’t go through how to set this, so the commands provided in the lab will fail unless you first run the command "gcloud config set project working-with-42-163692". You will see the project name in yellow brackets

There is no "Deprecate" button under Images anymore. To deprecate an image, you have to click on the 3 dots on the right side, and select Deprecate. Otherwise, you can do it via Cloud Shell as instructed.
