    @lowlander “Had to start them maually, have to look into that and fix it….”

    Check the “Task Scheduler” in “Administrative Tools”, I think there is a start up I configured in there but I disabled it because – to use a phrase that windows uses  – “something went wrong”. Anything I can do to help, let’s know. : )

    I will look into a startup script for cron to get TeamSpeak running at boot.

    _______________________________________

    Hello,

    This is a reminder for the power maintenance scheduled for tomorrow. The datacenter will be performing emergency power maintenance in our San Jose, CA facility on our cabinet.

    This will result in power loss to all of our servers in San Jose for approximately 3 hours between 10 AM and 1 PM (PST) on 11/21/2019. The datacenter will take preventative steps to ensure the servers are safely powered down during this maintenance event. To further avoid the risk of data loss, please remotely power down servers before the maintenance window begins.

    Please visit the Network Status page in the billing area for any updates about this maintenance. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our support team through the ticketing feature on our billing panel.

    Thanks,
    VirMach Team

    Hi all,

    Teamspeak is back up, no telling for how long. I’m looking into other hosts for teamspeak, I’ll give plenty of warning if and when it changes, however…

    To avoid IP changes causing issues you can use the ts.gamerecon.net as the address to join.

     

    Latter all.

    Wow, didn’t realise you had such a deep understanding of big data operations, nice!

    I is a shame but it is also seriously cheap with fairly decent support you don’t get with other competitively   priced solutions, up until this kickup we had 99.98 uptime over four years, so there is that to consider.

    I will try again to get the teamspeak up and running latter today but until they return with a thumbs up there is little point in my efforts

    You can, however, be sure I’ll have it working for next week’s shenanigans  : )

    And today this…

    _________________________

    Hello,

    Your old OpenVZ service has been brought back online. Your IP address is now 199.188.103.2 on this service. Your files are exactly the same and virtualization is the same. This IP is temporary and can and will change on short notice.

    We will try the conversion again tomorrow (or contact you as soon as we can) as we were unable to fix the issues with your service today. Your KVM server will retain your IP and that will remain your primary service. This temporary service may go offline as we re-attempt the conversion.

    Thanks,

    Sr. Sys Admin (In-House)

    Well that was a lotta work

    Database was not starting, other issues, needed to get a friend to help (linux expert) and to be fair I don’t think I would have sorted it out without him

    Enjoy!

    PS: If you need help accessing servers Nam, let’s know, I may be a little slow to respond as I have a shitlode of work on but I will respond

    Hi Shorty,

    I can’t seem to get the database to run, working on it now and I will post when I work out what is wrong with it

    It may have got corrupted during the migration process

    G’day mate,

    They are doing a major hardware upgrade and I can’t resolve my services page at virmach.com so I can’t tell you what the new IP is, they say it hasn’t changed – I have started a ticket – see what happens tomorrow

    perhap they are still upgrading/migrating, not sure but it’s midnight here, going to bed  ; )

    Good to hear from ya!

    Our server hosting Co. has changed our IP

    I have started a ticket requesting the return of out old IP so we will see how that goes and I’ll get back here in the next 24 hours to let you all know what the verdict is.

    thanks.

    Awesome!

    Yep, we should be good now for almost 12 months, well done team, the campaign go’s on and on thanks to our dedicated team.

    We also need to thank Lowlander because he has been working hard taking over much of the responsibility for the running and maintenance of the game servers and the Linux GameSpy emulator server. It’s a lot of work keeping it running and it’s not a simple task, not by a long shot!

    So please thank him for his efforts.

    Lowlander is also a full admin here at the Gamerecon website – I don’t know what I’d do without his efforts…                            …Thanks Lowlander!  you da man!

    Looking forward to the next year and I hope I can join the servers when my new connection is ready in a few short months.

    Hi Ray,

    Pleased to hear your donating! No one else has all year and I’m all out of funds trying to keep it going all these years.

    “even John our admin”

    I cant join the servers and have not been able to since hosting off my premises, not sure why to this day but I’ll try again if I see you in server. I saw you in the Teamspeak server the other night, it’s been quite busy in there of late, we have about 30 members so that’s nice!

    I can’t speak for  Shorty, John or Lowlander but maybe you might donate anyway, it’s not like you haven’t got your fill over the years  : )

    Try sending a PM to the lads from this forum, if they know your keen they may join

    Also might be worth a post at ghostrecon.net

     

    good luck

    – JH
