Multipass instance already exists

│ Error: Error from multipass

│ with multipass_instance.frontend,
│ on line 39, in resource "multipass_instance" "frontend":
39: resource "multipass_instance" "frontend" {

launch failed: instance "frontend" already exists
exit status 2

In that case you need to run this command to delete the instance:

multipass delete --purge frontend

And then you can run the command to create instances once again.


Note that you could have this error with multiple instances. In that case delete each instances before trying to create other instances.
