Zombie machine preventing app re-deployment (fly.io please help)

Hi fly.io support

This machine which I can’t delete seems to prevent me from re-deploying my app which again seems required after the recent emergency maintenance.

All manipulation attempts fail with:

Error: could not get machine e784e290f04ed8: failed to get VM e784e290f04ed8: invalid machine ID, 'e784e290f04ed8'

Could someone please delete it so I can re-deploy my app, thx.

Can you try fly vm stop · Fly Docs and let me know if that works?

Not working…

$ fly vm stop e784e290f04ed8
Error: failed to stop allocation: Could not find Allocation

Solved it by deleting the app.
But anyway moving to GCP App Engine now, this is just too brittle.
