Hello,

I would like that every time I start my VM instance (in a scheduled period, daily), a Python script present in a specific folder is launched without me needing to connect from the Microsoft remote desktop (I'm on mac) to the VM.

The command is something simple like :

python "MyFilePath/filename.py"

I already have Python3 and the necessary modules to launch the script installed on my VM.

Is this possible?

Thanks a lot for your help.

In this page you can find the options in GCP to use startup script in VMs using Windows and Linux.

A startup script is a file that contains commands that run when a virtual machine (VM) instance boots. Compute Engine provides support for running startup scripts on Linux VMs and Windows VMs.
