      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

VG TS3 Down - Know Issues

8 posts in this topic

I just found out that it's our TS3 annual license that needs to be renewed. Us "Administrators" in VG have access to a page with the login info for all our services, but TS3 VG login info is missing. I've contacted the other VG Heads and we'll get it sorted asap - BUT the TS3 could be down for a day (at least).

 

Feel free to use the VG Refugee Lounge Channel in the TS3 Server run by our Brother Clan, L.A.M.B.s (nopryl). TS3 login info and password can be requested at their site for anyone who is a not currently know to LAMBS.

Okay - I've gotten to the bottom of this all.  Seems that asshole SemlerPDX made the original account, and paid the original $55 annual license fee (if I am reading this correctly).  Sorry, I don't remember such things after a year, and I have no one to blame but myself for not getting the correct login info onto the login sheet we use.  Simple solution:  pay the fee and reinstate the TS3 server. Eazy peazy.

Only problem is I cannot afford this today, or tomorrow, or next week.  My daughter turned 18 last weekend, and her Mom and I got her a new laptop and split the cost - on top of that, she graduates High School in a few months, and I've just booked a flight/hotel/car so I can get out there for the weekend and attend the ceremony.  Basically, I'm over a thousand dollars in debt in less than a week here, and I can't pull the $55 out even though I very much want to pay my share for VG.

 

UPDATE:  Thanks to Double_13 for taking care of this!  I've paid the bill and will apply the license now.  VG TS3 will be up shortly.


Anyone who appreciates the VG TS3 and can afford to chip in a little bit, please use this paypal link to my account and I will use the funds to pay the license fee as soon as it is enough.
The total cost for one year is $55.  There is no discussion here, we cannot use a non-profit license, and we need at least 64 slots.  This is what we need, it's what we've had for years.  Paypal funds on the front page have already been spent on the website costs.  As we all know the list has not been cleared since the new website went live, possibly an oversight, or possibly to track the generous folks who have helped to pay for this awesome new website, so I must take up a special donation for this fee.  Do not donate to the PayPal link on the front page for this TS3 License collections attempt - use the link below, or I will not receive the funds I need to pay it.

 

IF you donate to this link, please also post up below with your name and the amount paid so I we can track the progress in THIS thread.

DONATE - (Special - goes directly to TS3 license fee through SemlerPDX)

GOAL:        $55 (US)
Received:  $55
