  • RKS Dedicated Servers and Website Downtime

    RKS Dedicated Server Assignments are now changing. One of the hosts used by RKS is proving to be problematic. As such, these are the new servers. Please note: To ease the ability to manage the servers and provides updates, I have now assigned names for each server.
    Servers being Cancelled
    PA Web Server
    PA TCAdmin Server

    Servers being Added
    VA Multipurpose Server
    TX Multipurpose Server


    Servers Pre-Existing
    VA Game Server
    As part of this change, the RKS website, all websites hosted by RKS, as well as TCAdmin Server, HLSTATSX Server, Teamspeak 3 Server, etc will all be going down. This update is expected to start within the next 7 days and once started will take 3 days to finish.

    VA Multipurpose Server - This server will take on the role of what was done by multiple servers. This includes the web servers, tcadmin master server, hlstatsx, sourcebans, vpn servers, etc.
    2 X Intel Xeon E5520 Processors
    6GB DDR3 RAM
    Total of 1 TB Storage
    1Gbps Connection
    Windows Web Server 2008 x64

    Texas Multipurpose Server - This server will run mostly game servers for those closer to the TX area.
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400
    4GB RAM
    250GB HDD 7200RPM
    100Mbps Connection
    Windows Web Server 2008 x64
    This brings the total number of RKS dedicated server count to 3, however, total processing power has increased significantly.

    Now the server names!!!

    VA Game Server - Daedalus
    VA Multipurpose Server - Odyssey
    TX Multipurpose Server - Prometheus

    We finally get the TF2 server active... And then we change servers and thus, IP.
    Fail.

      Daedalus is the pre-existing game server, only the web server, admin panel, sourcebans, TS3 (or everything using rkszone.com) are being replaced

        Precisely what housemaster said. All things on rkszone.com and rkszone.org are being moved. Rkszone.net will continue without problems.

            Odyssey just came online, I am starting to prep the server so that it can take over the functions of our previous servers.

              As is expected with Windows servers, something unknown has happened causing something (if not everything) to go horribly wrong. Downtime will now be between saturday and sunday instead of between friday and saturday. Furthermore, domain transfers has been postponed to match this change.

              Downtime of RKS is expected to be between 1-3 hours. DNS records will have to update, so running "ipconfig /flushdns" may help once the server is back online. When the move is complete, it will be posted on this website and the steam community. So if you get a notification in steam community but you do not see the announcement on the forums, this is a good indication that you're still on the old server and will have to flush your DNS.
