C3W1 graded app error in creating storage bucket

Hi,

I get the following error in creating storage bucket:

CommandException: “mb” command does not support “file://” URLs. Did you mean to use a gs:// URL?

I am using the correct student account. Any help?

Thanks.

The error says that gsutil make bucket command supports gs:// and not file:// protocol. If this is unclear, please share the command as a reply to this post.

This is command I am just copying from instructions:

gsutil mb -p $GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT
-c standard
-l us
gs://$GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT-vcm/

I could make it work. I was not setting the project id before which I did now. Also, I used a private window.

Thanks.

Thanks for sharing the fix.

The lab should be done in a private window so as to not accidentally use a non-student account and get charged.
