Set up a VM (optional)

If you plan to run Cloud SDK from a Compute Engine virtual machine instance, the virtual machine must be set up to access Google Cloud Platform services.

To test whether your virtual machine is set up correctly, run gcloud compute instances describe <your-vm-instance-name> from the command line. A service account must be listed that includes the scope https://www.googleapis.com/auth/cloud-platform. If you can't find the scope, see Setting the scope of service account access for instances.
