While trying to create using cli iam getting 409 response "Bucket already exist" . But iam not able to see that same on console. Why is that so?
Please check this link : https://cloud.google.com/storage/docs/naming-buckets .
In the section for Bucket name considerations
Bucket names reside in a single Cloud Storage namespace. This means that:
Every bucket name must be unique.
Bucket names are publicly visible.
If you try to create a bucket with a name that already belongs to an existing bucket, Cloud Storage responds with an error message. However, once you delete a bucket, you or another user can reuse its name for a new bucket.
Hence , the bucket name you are assigning is already taken up and is being used in some other account .
This is same as S3 bucket naming rules in AWS .
So we should pick a unique name for each student vs the default in the video?
Yes… because there is high probability that the default name is already taken .
