    Hi @frankki.
    I have sent you the link in a message to download the key.
    We have new instructions to install OpenStack as the current was broken due to CentOS expiry.
    Please give me some time and I will share the new instructions.

    Hi @frankki,
    The new GCP Ubuntu OpenStack Image.

    Here are the steps to install with a new image.
    # Launch an instance to deploy OpenStack
    gcloud compute instances create openstack-01 --zone us-central1-f --custom-cpu 32 --custom-memory 72GB --min-cpu-platform "Intel Haswell" --image "https://www.googleapis.com/compute/v1/projects/onap-177920/global/images/aarna-aio-openstack-victoria-ubuntu-20-16032022-00"

    #If you see this error for utility container. Please ignore.
    aio1_utility_container-35e97cfd : ok=57 changed=3 unreachable=0 failed=1 skipped=26 rescued=0 ignored=0

    # Replace the following attached scripts in path ~/onap-custom/setup-utils
    Extract the attached scripts.zip to get the updated files.

    Follow the remaining steps as per the lab document to install OpenStack.

    Find the ip address of your eth0 interface

    ip addr show ens4
