Hi, I have a Moodle installation hosted on Google Cloud. Moodle is running in a "g1-small" VM instance that I created. However there are 2 new VMs that popped up shortly after installation, I did not create them and I cannot get them to go away. The VMs are called "moodle-web-group" and "moodle-db-group". These are "n1-standard" instances and they are costing us hundreds of dollars a month to run because I cannot get them to shut down. They default to "Automatic Restart: On" which means I can't shut them down. If I change the Automatic Restart option to Off, it automaticlaly gets set back to On, and if I try to delete the VMs, they automatically re-add themselves. What is going on here? These VMs are not necessary, as Moodle is self-contained inside the VM I created. Is this something Google Cloud is doing by itself, or is it part of Bitnami for some reason?
