Dedicated server freezes on start up

I recently updated my server to the newest gmod, and when I start it up, it goes through the normal spiel of start up. When it comes to the last error door model message, it freezes. This is usually the part where it says “Connected to steam servers blah blah vac secure.” This never pops up and the srcds window just sits there and nothing more loads.

Server info: Windows server 2008 R2
I updated, then extracted the GCF and overwrote all the gmod files on the dedi.
Updated with command: hldsupdatetool.exe -command update -game garrysmod -verify_all
I even restarted the box even after updating (pointless, yes)
I’m going to try vanilla in a bit to see where that gets me.

Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!

happening to mine too I have a dedicated xenon hosted server

Open a support ticket and see what they have to say about it.

I have the same problem here too. Amazing updates from Garry! …

I’m having this issue too, and a fix would be nice. I thought it was just me, but apparently not. It’s happening on all 3 of my servers.

I would very much like a fix to that problem.
I wanna run my dedi honey again :frowning: I miss her, her name is Sarah :S

Mine have much more laid back names, such as GMODAPOC1, GMODRERPBACKUP, and CONTGMOD1. My three true loves… that need to be fixed.

bump.
