AutoTroll Problems

Post by Havok » Fri Mar 25, 2011 1:00 am

I came home tonight and found the AutoTroll screen full of all sorts of errors. According to the log the issue appears to have started around 10am this morning my time. From what I can see the AT data appears to be partially corrupt. For example, in the list of games on the AT console some of the games have the wrong game number assigned to them.

I’m going to leave it turned off overnight. My latest system back is probably about 5-7 days old and if I'm unable to repair I'll look into restoring the system after work Friday evening.

That’s all I have to report at the moment. More later.
Regards,

PlanetServer did not keep backups.
Circus-Maximus do have backups.
The games are all fine. It's just the AutoTroll software that went off the grid.
Some kicking, screaming and a hammer and we should be fine again :P

I had to go out of town at the last minute yesterday and I'll be back on Sunday. AT will be down until then. Take the weekend off everyone. :)
