Server Not Streaming Since Hub Went Down


WaR('@') El Pato

Recommended Posts

OK.. I am REALLY frustrated here!

 

Ever since the PBBANS hub went down, my server has stopped streaming. Even though the hub is now back online, my server is STILL NOT STREAMING.

 

I log into my account today and notice that it does not say Streaming Game Admin...wtf?

 

Look at my account and my server is ORANGE...wtf?

 

Because the hub was down, my server is deactivated? Not cool.

 

I click on the re-activate button and wait... still nothing.

 

Initiate Automated Hub Streaming (no problems) ....still not streaming.

 

Manually configure using 2142CC.....still not streaming.

 

Update Punkbuster on the server.....still not streaming.

 

Restart the server ......still not streaming.

 

Talk to Duality on IRC.....you guessed it...still not streaming.

 

This is my pbsv.cfg -----> http://www.pastie.org/365271 <--------file that duality looked at and said was fine.

 

HELP!

 

Damn Stupid Hub for going down!!!!

If done correctly streaming will kick in instantly.

 

This is from the FTP guide pb_cfgs.zip

pb_sv_uconempty
pb_sv_uconadd 1 64.27.21.46 "pbbanshub" "pbbanshub"

 

Remember it an absolute must, to have a blank file (pbucon.use) in your root pb directory for hub streaming to work.

None of that helped.

 

In the end I had to re-install the server to get it to stream again.

 

Can you please update me back to SGA?

 

Thanks!

OK... I am about ready to kill someone.

 

I re-install today and get the server streaming again and now it has stopped again.

Have you tried everything in the Information Center?

 

Check for the pbucon.use file in your PB directory. That is the most common culprit. Make sure PB is up to date as well - your server is currently running PunkBuster Server (v1.251 | A1365 C1.227).

Is the pbucon.use supposed to be COMPLETELY EMPTY?

 

Also, what is the latest Punkbuster version?

 

Thanks!

The latest versions of Punkbuster are listed on the Evenbalance site, http://www.evenbalance.com/.

 

The pbucon.use file will normally appear empty. If I remember correctly, the pbucon.use file is a temp 'scratchpad' for the PBUcon streaming method.

I had my Server Host update the PunkBuster since the only version that is avail to me was (v1.251 | A1365 C1.227).

 

The server is streaming again but I am going to have to keep a close eye on the situation.

 

This ----> http://www.pastie.org/366240 <---- was the contents of the pbucon.use file.

 

 

Should I delete the contents?

Might want to add the following lines to your pbsv.cfg

 

 

; ------------------------------

; PB Tasks (pb_sv_task [start delay (seconds)] [repeat (seconds)] [command])

; ------------------------------

pb_sv_task 0 7200 pb_sv_ver // Keep-Alive for PBBans Hub

pb_sv_task 0 86400 pb_sv_update // Check for PB updates daily

 

If it happens again, try clearing the pbucon.use; it can only improve the situation, since all that content is in pbsv.cfg already.

This ----> http://www.pastie.org/366950 <---- is my pbsv.cfg file. Where EXACTLY should I add those commands and how should it read?

 

Thanks for your HELP, I genuinely appreciate it.

I personally run 5 BF2142 servers, and was able to configure it by simply using the Automated webtool. Perhaps give it a second try, restart the server, and see if it works then?

Maybe you didn't read it but My Server Is Streaming Now. :rolleyes:

 

I will add the suggestions.

 

Again, thanks for the help. ;)
