    Virtual server id X is running elsewhere, shutting down

    Attention: Yes, I can read that error, and I do understand that it means that there's another server running with the same server ID as the TS3 server I'm running.

    It is because it is a "CLONED" server. Yes. I know that.

    So please. Don't come and tell me to read the title. Because that has nothing to do with what I'm about to ask.

    --- Main Question Below ---

    Anyways, since I have a backed up copy of the server, so I can launch it whenever the other one goes down. It worked fine. However, there are occations where I might have accidently ran two servers at the same time. Thus, the one that started first is shut down first (FIFO method). Which, it is totally fine.

    However, here comes the problem. AFTER I noticed that the backup server was accidentlly executed, sure, one would shut down the backup server right away, but since the server that was executed first was also shut down (see title), it'd make sense for the ower to try to restart the primary server as well. After restarting the primary server, everyone seems to be flooding back into the server, which is still fine. But, after few seconds after most of the user re-joined the server, I'm getting spammed for lots and lots of connection lost error messages.

    Now what's up with this?

    look at the bold hour. About this time the server disables itself and the process of teamspeak is still, but can not connect to it through the client
    Please help

    There's a flaw in your logic. It's totally wrong that second server killing the first (supposedly - primary) one.

    Yes, this is a stupid problem.

    Why does the server care if there are multiple processes?

    The server process is spawned from a separate directory entirely.

    It worked in the last beta, please don't make the process quit.

    Okay I figured this one out.

    We were experiencing this because the same database file had been copied to another server.

    Even though the IP and Port of the virtual server had changed, and existing on a different machine, as well as all of its settings being different, it was still shutting down.

    This was because inside the database file a unique server id had been assigned (as briefly mentioned in the quick start guide).

    This is what was found to be duplicated and caused the 'server is running elsewhere' (according to its GUID) error.

    The easiest fix is to just re-create the server entirely.

    Have you copied your server from 1 location to another folder or something like that?

    Edit 2018
    This virtual server is registered as a running server.
    There only can be one server with this unique ID and a copy will always shutdown.

    This happens when you copy your server to another location and try to start it while the original virtual server is still running.
    Or when you did not stop the server the supported way. The server remains for about 3 hours in our system till it times out.

    So you did not stop the old server before taking it offline?

    This means you have to wait 2 hours and then you will be able to start the server.

    for changes
    Stop the whole process per command serverprocessstop and then move files.

    virtual server id 1 is running elsewhere, shutting down!

    Hi,

    let me first explain the setup.

    TS server running on 1 box ALL WORKING FINE !!

    Now the database of this server is copied overnight to my webserver. (other server , other location)
    Why ? backup ts. in case our "normal" goes down.
    why a copy of this database ? coz it contains all data. users, passwords, channels. like this u create an exact copy of that server.

    is there a way to give this server another uniqu server id ? so it stops failing ?

    The command serverprocessstop also unregisters all current virtual server from that instance. This will be send to the accounting server.
    Don't just stop the server! Use the command per ServerQuery.

    [email protected]
    You have to create a new virtual server.

    The error message is clear.
    A second server (a copy) is already running.

    You must stop one of these servers.
    When sending me private messages: Please make sure to include reference link to your forum thread or post.
