When using a trial account, Fly apps are limited to one machine. However, this seems to include destroyed machines. So a trial account with a destroyed machine can’t create new machines. Surely this isn’t intended?
For a trial account you can only have one machine per app and since you can have only two apps then you can have a maximum of two machines.
Destroyed machines don’t count towards this. A trial account with a destroyed machine should be able to create a new machine
I don’t seem to be able to create a new machine in an app if there’s one that is destroyed. Probably a bug, are you able to reproduce this?
For example, I have this machine under the app
When I run
fly m run --region lax -a coder-workspaces ubuntu, I get:
Searching for image 'ubuntu' remotely... image found: img_e1zd4mxx7onv02yw Image: registry-1.docker.io/library/ubuntu:latest Image size: 30 MB Error could not launch machine: failed to launch VM: To create more than 1 machine per app please add a payment method. https://fly.io/dashboard/yukata/billing
Thanks for calling this out: we were able to reproduce this with a trial account. I’ll make sure that we look into it as soon as we can
We’ve identified the bug and you should be able to create your machine without seeing the error message.
Please let us know if you run into any issues.
