Installing LoadMaster on GCP


Hello All - 

I am attempting to set up LoadMaster on Google Cloud Platform (GCP).  I took the VirtualBox image and converted it to RAW format as required by GCP to import.  The image imported OK to GCP, I added two NICs, and it seems to try and start up but fails to stay online.  I'm wondering if there is any way to either get a RAW format disk directly for the LoadMaster (in case it is something with the image) or a way to "manually" install the software on a standard Linux distribution?  Is it even possible to install this way (from an exported disk image)?  Thanks in advance for any help.

GCP console logs show this before it turns off:

sorry for the delay on this,

I have checked with my colleagues,

currently Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is not supported,
unfortunately this also includes trying to deploy it using a non-cloud image
