I’m pulling out the little hair I have left over this issue. I recently had to move my two Conan servers (one running the original map, one running the Siptah map) to different hardware. That hardware is running an Ark server (10 clustered instances for the various maps). I didn’t have a problem at first. I’m only using Pippi and Unlockable Containers as mods. I configured separate ports for the main map and the Siptah map, and both started up OK.
I stopped the servers yesterday to look at an issue we were having, and I couldn’t get Siptah back up again. It went through the startup process, would reach the point where it would normally be accepting players, and then would go through the shutdown procedure. I discovered that it isn’t just the Siptah server doing this. Only one server will run now. Whichever one is started first will be the one that runs, the other just shuts down. I can’t pin down what’s causing this in the conansandbox.log file. The nearest I can come up with is an inability to bind ping to 0.0.0.0:(port number 7799 / 7798 / or some other port around that number).
I had them running side-by-side for a couple weeks and restarted them several times. Now it’s not working. What’s the trick to getting two servers running on the same box?
