The new update introduced some additional complexity to running a DayZ server. There are some servers will configuration issues that cause them to not be able to connect to the central server.

 

Nearly always this is because of a particular operating system configuration (lacking updates). More rarely it is because the server had not been whitelisted or it has issues in its mission/setting configuration. Our QA are currently auditing all servers, making a list of problem ones, then Brian is going through with the server hosting owners to verify why the servers are not connecting correctly.

 

Please note that we cannot directly control server hosting configuration. We cannot "fix" problems associated with operating systems or incorrect server configuration. We are working with hosting providers to notify them when we identify this. If you have a problem with a server, you need to let us know the name/IP of the server. I have hundreds of people complaining about servers to me, but not one single time has someone actually told me the server.

 

Nearly all Hardcore servers have been audited, Regular ones are in progress.

 

The following is a WIP list of servers known to be experiencing connection issues.

Before I sound like a dick: Thank you for publishing this information so quickly.

 

However - would it be possible to have a list of servers that are known to be working instead of the ones that aren't?

 

That way we can directly connect to the servers that are working and get going instead of having to doublecheck the IP every time before joining. :)

Thanks for the info, Rocket!

 

To confirm, these are the servers/hosts that can't save or load character data properly?

Dont play for a couple of days to be on the safe side tbh :)

They are working on the problem, which is much better then working on a list of "working servers".

Patience my friend :)

yes, however it's subject to change as the hosters are notified and we're working with them to fix them. I'll update the list when we get more info.

Good deal! Get them the IPs to problematic servers guys, so we can all get back to enjoying the patch. If I weren't at work right now i'd be testing a bunch of them!

Cheers for the rocket-reply. Hehe, that should become a thing.

 

You said that the new update added "complexity" to running a server. Can you elaborate on that, so we humble serfs might understand?

Servers can be set to work on a shard (a "walled garden" of the main database). This means that the server, in effect, is running on a separate hive (database) - even though that hive exists in the same database as all the others. It allows us to "support" private hives without the difficulty associated with running multiple databases. Currently we are running two shards, regular and hardcore. If the server hoster incorrectly configure their server, it will screw up and create it's own shard. Most of the servers in this list, however, have OS problems that are causing interruptions to HTTPS communication with the central server : thus they are not correctly saving/loading.

Is this what is causing some servers to not even save if you rejoin the same server as well though?  I've logged off of a server for a few minutes, only to log back into the same server and be back on the coast as a freshie.

Dean, the correct data a player should be seeing would be a loadout from a few days ago, correct? I've noticed that while some servers that seemingly cannot connect to the hive are loading fresh spawns, those servers that do seem to connect to the central hive are loading database saves from a few days back. While i'm not complaining about it, I wondered if this is the correct data that should be showing up when the server does successfully connect to the hive?

I.e. they are not properly connected, therefore not saving/loading.

Maybe you could have some list hosted on this website, which would be checked by the game and those servers are marked with a little symbol in the serverlist then, so people can decide if they are sure to join that server. I see that there is a problem with certain servers losing quite some players then, but if you've restarted on one server like 3 times, the server would loose you as a player anyway.

By the time we would write such a thing, we could have fixed the problems themselves.

Hi rocket, could you please have a look at a post I made about my character being bugged?

 

The servers you have linked are actually the only ones I CAN play on, the ones that have been updated with the correct hive etc are the ones with my bugged character on making the game on regular server unplayable, thanks.
