Viewing Bug #125: Server Password
Category Savage Server Posted By H3027 Last Updated Oct 28, 2008
Assigned to Not Assigned Status Closed Priority Low
Affected Products Not Specified
Description The svr_serverpassword variable isn't working randomly. However, the server is marked as password protected and the dialogbox is showing up, but no password is needed. There is no way to password protect the server. Restarts, changing configs, clearing vars won't help. When it happens once, you will never be able to password protect the server again.
It happened to Sav8 on the Newerth box 10 months ago and it's impossible to password protect the server today, although all settings got deleted in the meantime. And it happened to the NDL server today. Password is set, but you can join without.

You are talking actually about svr_password, right?

I think this has happened to me before on the Aussie servers. What it ended up being was a conflict with VIP passwords. Can't remember anymore then that though.

This is has to do servers with VIP servers.
If you want to protect a server with vip slots you should use svr_passwordNoVIP instead of svr_password.. maybe that will help

Ok, I've fixed it now but it was very annoying. Everytime I restarted the server the old VIP password settings were written again into the startup.cfg although there was no config to take it from. I checked all config files and disabled remote access, but the VIP password got changed out of nowhere. The solution was now to set the rights for the file startup.cfg to 'reading only' and finally the serverpassword works again.

Sounds like an issue with your config setup i suggest you search all files for the related cvar. Closing since this issue is not a bug.
