• Event Failure

    From Daryl Stout@VERT/TBOLT to digital man on Sunday, December 26, 2021 23:53:16
    Rob,

    For some reason, I can not get the nightly maintenance batchfile
    to run...or to have a batchfile run to "busy out the BBS" so the
    maintenance can run separately. Whenever I try to enter "Requires
    Exclusive Execution, it NEVER saves it, always reverting to NO. I
    am wanting to busy out the BBS so the maintenance will run. The
    MSGMAINT utility runs at 5am, but I need to run the doorgame
    maintenance just after midnight local time.

    For an event to run exclusively, it must have a specific node number to "run as". What do you have the "Execution Node" set to? If it's set to "any", then it cannot be an exclusive event.

    Not sure what "busy out the BBS" means.

    he wants the BBS to go offline while maintenance then back online.

    he wants all the nodes down and the bbs non accessable until his maint is done ---

    I'm not sure why he would need to down all nodes for an event? I set one node aside to run my events, it's not like the old days when we had a lot of people logging onto our BBS's.

    I did that too when I ran my bbs before. One node is enough for maintenance.

    I suppose that *could* be what he wants, but I was asking for *his* clarification. Synchronet never has (even back in the dial-up modem days) made a node (or phone line) "busy" while an exclusive event was being executed. Instead, a message explaining that the node is not available is displayed (instead of login prompt) to the user and the session is disconnected.
