    Hi,

    Are you able to login to the Google Cloud instance via console? Did you have a key for accessing it?

    Hello,

    You should be able to use the "passwd root" command from the console to configure a new root password. Here's a third-party URL where this is discussed:

    Get root password for Google Cloud Engine VM

    Thank you.
