Last updated on MARCH 12, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Compute Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Generic Windows


The article will present a series of actions that can be used to restore access / regain administrative access to a Windows OCI-C Compute (Compute Classic) instance.

It is assumed that an initial troubleshooting was done to rule out other potential causes such as improper network configuration for RDP access (e.g. security rule not in place to allow RDP traffic to the instance), temporary service outage, VPN tunnel not being up / active (if accessing the instance through an IPsec connection) etc.
For initial troubleshooting, please see these KM articles:

SRDC - Unable to RDP into a Windows Cloud instance (from outside Oracle Cloud) (Doc ID 2204840.1)
