I was successful in creating instances in 220.127.116.11, however, after upgrading to 18.104.22.168, when I create an new instance I get the following error:
You cannot start instances you do not own as a non-root user. Thrown by the 'ADSModule' plugin while performing the 'StartInstance' method.
I noticed in the instances.json file that previous instances created had a user tag of: "User": "machinename$",
Now in 22.214.171.124 it creates a user tag of: "User": "NETWORK SERVICE",
I have to now edit this file and change it back to machinename$ for it to work.
