Error creating machine from api

Hi,

I triggered the creation of a new machine from the api. However the machine status is showing up as “archive” and the machine is not coming up.

{“status”:“OK”,“droplet”:{“id”:388939,“name”:“SG-doreplica1-239”,“image_id”:636963,“size_id”:62,“region_id”:2,“backups_active”:false,“ip_address”:null,“locked”:false,“status”:“archive”,“created_at”:“2013-08-20T01:35:36Z”,“backups”:[],“snapshots”:[]}}

Any thoughts on why this might be happening?

regards, Dharshan

Status: archive means the droplet is destroyed. The creation event probably failed – please open up a support ticket.
