I had an instance created from the Deep Learning VM image which stopped allowing me to SSH into it through the Cloud console and went on a constant loop of trying to transfer SSH keys to the VM. Things I tried to get this to work:
- Access other VMs in the project - these could be accessed
- Shutdown and restart several times - did not work
- Created my own pair of SSH keys - did not work
I have now created another instance using the same image - this works. However, when I try to attach my old boot disk in place of the new one, the same problem is appearing. I have installed a fair amount on my old boot disk and would like to keep it so would like to resolve this problem.
Question: What is wrong with my old boot disk that means the SSH keys cannot be transferred to the VM, and how can I fix this?
