I have a VM on google cloud and I have been using it for few years. Every now and then, I suddenly won't be able to connect anymore via RDP. It simply says that the IP is unreachable, like when a server is down or doesn't exist.
Another thing is that the server also restarts by itself (seems like a failure, which is something I would expect from windows).
For the outage scenario, what I would normally do is access the dashboard (cloud.google.com) > virtual machines > stop and start the VM, but the issue with that is because the IP gets changed to a new one. This is the frustrating bit because I have applications pointing to this IP and other people using this IP to connect via RDP as well.
Any way around this?
