Yes.. This could be a rare scenario as you think. But if you have used T-server with switch simulator,chances are more that you could have encountered this problem.

In this case, the T-server disconnects from the switch and status changes to “Service Unavailable“.But after a while, the switch – Tserver connection is restored and the status becomes “started”. Again, this doesn’t last for much time. Just wait for some 45 seconds and the link goes down. And this game continues to give the same trouble.

Solution: In T-server, the option ts-tp-enabled should be set to false and this will fix the problem if you are as lucky as i am.. 🙂
