We will have some server downtime 11-30-17

Hi All, we will have some server downtime on 11-30-17 due to Host Hardware being moved to New cabinets. This will happen in this time frame On November 30, between approximately midnight and 10 am CST,

So we could be down a few hours.

Here is the notice from my host.

“Our facilities provider in Chicago, Internap, is requiring that we move several cabinets’ worth of gear in this facility over to new cabinets. We have been planning these moves for the last month and coordinating with Internap to try to make them as smooth as possible. We have done such moves successfully many times in the past.

We have moved other cabinets already, over the course of several mornings (we are doing them early in the morning to minimize customer impact). On November 30, between approximately midnight and 10 am CST, we plan to move the equipment in the cabinet hosting your specific service. This means that you will see your service gracefully shut down at some point during the window (close to the beginning of it), and boot back up later in the window (as soon as we have finished moving all of the gear — at least several hours later).

We will be taking every precaution to be as careful as we can with your hardware. However, there is always the possibility that a hardware problem will be revealed by the move. Because of this, we strongly recommend that you back up any irreplaceable data that you may have stored on the server.

If you require very high levels of uptime and the hours of downtime will cause problems for you on the 30th, please contact us, and we can investigate how we can help, such as by providing a temporary service or moving you to other hardware. (While most of our cabinets in Chicago will need to be moved, a couple will remain in place, and those will only see downtime when our router is migrated this same morning — likely less than 60 minutes.)”

Thinking of Letting a couple servers go.

Thinking of Letting a couple servers go.

I’m thinking of letting a couple servers go because hardly anyone plays on them anymore. The Hidden Source and Day of Defeat Source.  I love The Hidden, But with the last windows 10 update, it’s very hard for me to play. When I play the Hidden now my mouse will randomly aim at the ground or sky or just spin me in circles. Very annoying.

Day of Defeat I also love but rarely play and I only use it for the stats website for The Hidden. So I think I will remove both of them, And maybe look for something else to install.
If you have any suggestions of what game to have a server for leave it in the comments.

It’s really hard for me to delete The Hidden lol Lots of fun memories on that server.  Had that server running since 2013 and SeaNanners made a video on the server

I’m thinking of trying out a Vanilla Rust server to see if does any better then the Modded Rust Server. I see you can have Oxide installed with only admin tools and it can stay in the Community tab.

I could be away from internet do to Hurricane Irma

Well, It looks like Hurricane Irma could be heading to my area in Florida, That means I could be away from computer access for a little bit.
I will still be able to use my phone hopefully. But will be limited on what I can do.

Hopefully, this thing turns out to sea or gets weaker.

VDS upgrade

VDS upgrade

 

Update::  The old map is back…  Backed up from last night so maybe a little setback. Better than starting over.

Hey, I looked into upgrading my VDS server to a more powerful server and I contacted my host and asked if this would wipe my Rust server and they said there would be no data loss on the upgrade. So I went ahead and upgraded my VDS from 4 core to 6 core.  And Umm yeah it wiped the map.

I now have a ticket in support to see if they can fix it for us.  If it cannot be fixed I’m sorry.
On the other hand, we do have a better Server.

Update:: This really sucks 🙁  So far we have restored from a backup with no luck.  I don’t think we will get it back.

The support ticket is still open. I’m hoping maybe the CEO will come in on my ticket he has jumped in on my tickets before and fixed things others
could not fix.

New Admin Added for The Hidden Source Server

Hi All, Just wanted to announce that we have a new Admin for our The Hidden Source Server. His name is “Colonel Mustard” And I want to thank him for wanting to help us keep things in line
for us. We still have a few admin but they don’t play so much anymore So we definitely needed another Admin. Thanks, Colonel Mustard.
