 no luck last night. cant get my IT bud over before my vacation so in case any of you have an idea i will describe the problem. I thought it might be a hardware issue but the 2nd hard drive on the server goes online just fine. it has vista so i cant use it to run the server.
 the sever boots up just fine, but for whatever reason it doesnt detect the the net. if i try to diagnose the problem it tells me there is no internet, so somehow the settings got changed after i installed the fan, and after i fixed an invalid toon.
 any ideas would be appreciated so i can try to get it back up and running before i leave on vacation in 30 hours.
thanks

To help:
1/ Can you check the led (one yellow, one green) on each side of your network plug behind your compute, if they are off when you plug the nework cable and when the computer is on then it is a network board issue,
2/ In that case, can you check if the network board is correctly put in the mainboard slot, or correctly activated in the bios,
3/ by the way, check all the cable are correcty plug on the mainboard,
4/ otherwise it can be a network driver load issue on the computer boot, that will be hard to fix by mail, you have better to wait for your IT guy to fix it.

In all case, have good vacation,
Noruas

Ha Turril,

Seriously appreciating your efforts to help us get our fix heheh. Been a while since I did some troubleshooting, but let me dust off my techsupport hat...
...
...
*cough cough*
...
there, let's see...

well, if you can connect to the internet using Vista on the same machine, then I guess the cable is connected properly and it's probably not a hardware issue. Could be a driver issue or maybe a security issue. Anything changed recently, before the crash? Like a software security update or some new software installed
I am assuming
- you had the vista dual boot option configured before the issue occured
- you can't browse the net using IE/chrome either (e.a. it's a general problem on the XP rig and not an issue specific to hosting nwn)

Some suggestions before you start:
1) make backups on external media (!!)
2) VERIFY you can read the external media ;)

In order to find the cause so we can properly deal with it try:
3) check if you can connect to the internet if you disable the firewall. If so, then check firewall settings
4) check if you can connect to the internet in safemode (F8 during startup, choose safe mode with network). If you can connect, then you know the network adapter is setup ok and some other software/program is causing the issue

5) You can check the windows event viewer (start > run > eventvwr) to view the logfile. This log is usually quite extensive and note that there may well be errors in here from looong before the issues ocurred. These probably are not the cause of the issue today. Also note that "normal operation events are logged here, not just errors and warnings. To help you find the relevant messages:
5a) Check the logs for event messages when you try to connect. Look them up on the internet, see if that gives you any clue what is causing the issue
5b) Check the various logs around the date the issues first occurred, see if you can find anything in the logs for software changes around this time.

Hope you had a good holiday and I bid you good hunting

Cheers

I've never known Americans to go on longer holiday than a week or so, either he's looking for a new server or he pulled the plug Embarrassed

Ohw c'mon guys.

If he had pulled the plug he would have told us.
The man might just still taking joy in his well deserved holiday.
Or when he got back he just got swarmed with work or other important rl stuff.

Let's just rest this topic untill he gives word, for I think he get's some message every time we put in a reply.

Turril, hope you can get her up soon cause the timing of this downtime is really dreadfull: a lot of veterans were coming back or considering to come back....that was over a month ago now and I can imagine most players will have found a new game to get their daily kick (tochlight 2 anyone?)

AAAAAHHHHH!  I'm going nuts without my LOTR & NWN fix.  I hope the server is back up soon, if ever.  Other mods just are not the same for me.  I grew up on NWN with this mod and it was always a joy to come back after taking a break and seeing the veterans along with the new faces.

   Huh, had a random feeling to log back in after a few years absent.  Bad timing on my part, but good to see so many old names around.  I spend most of my NWN time in the Ravenloft mod these days.  After all the arena/pvp focus servers died out, I found a new challenge in playing low magic serves and got pulled into the whole RP aspect in the process.  I never really saw myself as an RP kind of person, but it reminds me a lot of writing/reading in a way.    If anyone happens by there, I play under my old Antiworld name - "Legion XXI".  I've seen a few logins there that I recognized from here, so I'm not the only one you will run into.

   At any rate, good luck with your server issues, and when it comes back up maybe I'll dust off an old character and hold a player event for boss loot or something.  Happy hunting, and see you on the battlefield. (Noruas, that means you. Haha)

Being a system administrator for years, maybe I can be of some assistance ... message me at this forum or email me at mpasschier@gmail.com or use Skype of TS ... or any other ways of communication Smiley

Also dont know if this helps at all ... but I am able to run a (backup) server at home ... am running a linux server all day almost every day ... maybe it can run on that ... otherwise have here at home more than 5 computers running most of the time so I definately can find one computer to run GvM on, at any platform you wish (preferably XP, Windows7)
Also have enough harddiskspace for any database GvM has and can schedule backups for it .. can even sync the backups on schedule with any other computer you have?

Turril long ago I had asked this ones in a private email ... because I really am afraid this uber great server will die one day before my kids are old enough to play this game too ... but I will ask it again here ... if at all possible can I help with making and keeping backups in the form described above or can I help in any other way so that this server can live on forever?

Anyhow ... am missing this server a lot ... as do everone of us here I guess ...
Hope this server will come back and will never die!!  Cheesy
GvM rulez!  Cool
