How to attach persistent disk on running instance at Google Compute
So I have this USD300 credit for two months period to play around with Google compute.
I had created an instance, but with very small storage, 10GB. Then I decide nothing much can be done with that, so I created a persistent disk.
Google compute's documentation is incomplete and terrible, so we need to do try and error. So this is the confirmed workable solution that I tested:
Let say we created a project name "blah-1234"
and a persistent disk name "disk-for-blah"
to be attached to a VM instance named "vm-blah"
Please replace the --zone
~$ gcloud compute instances attach-disk --project "blah-1234" vm-blah --disk disk-for-blah --zone asia-east1-c
