  • Disks failed!

    It happened early january, it happen now again - both disks of the server have failed. Today morning I got the message from the RAID about degraded array. Made few backups and reported that to my vendor.

    Conclusion: Both disks needed to be replace, which happened afternoon. Server has been now rebuilt from the scratch, so I hope all things are working right now.

    Please report back here if something is wrong.

    Update:
    The flood doors are open! Uploads via ADU are now activated. Please keep in mind that many people will try to upload their data, this leads to a busy server the next hours.

      Only now that it is broken do I realize how much I enjoy being able to see little numbers and ratings pop up after every game! So I donated a little bit to support the cause .

      This is related to the new tanks introduced with 0.8.4 - there are several tanks duplicated from the originals with modified specification, the tanks are tagged "training". They have been excluded now from tank expert.

      Something weird, not sure if it´s related but my stats aren´t updated anymore, even though ADU reports that the uploading of my dossier and battle results were a success. Also manually uploading doesn´t change my stats at all, it´s like some connection is broken somewhere. In the bottom right of ADU, dossiers waiting for upload and battle results waiting for upload are both at 0, so that should be right...

      Yup, same here. Even though battles are being uploaded, stats are not being updated. Like you say, something is broken somewhere.

      Battlehistory and Battlesummary is working, it´s just not updating the total stats.

      The same for me, only battlelog, battlehistory and battlesummary works fine. I've started tracking two days ago so I thought it's a matter of time statistics will be generated but now I see this might be a disk-issue related case.

      http://www.vbaddict.net/wot.php?do=charts - all zeros.
      http://www.vbaddict.net/wot.php?do=s...es=1&groupby=0 - no stats although I set filter to > 1 battles

      This has been fixed, as your data was not imported correctly.

      Tank Overview doesn't update for me. I played 17 games yesterday, 20-02, which are shown in Battlehistory and Battlesummary, but not in Tank Overview. Last tank activity there is from 19-02

      On the Charts tab, bottom left it shows my list of tanks, it normally shows a star there for battles played in the last 12 hours. Nothing happened there yesterday.

      Did you uploaded via Web or via ADU?
