Problem Description

Error starting Ark Survival Ascended in Docker container.


Could not get Ark Survival Ascended instances to start, update or do anything. So, I tried starting in Docker container since I read on here that it was recommended for ASA instances. I followed the guide for using Docker containers to start AMP instances. I also followed the ASA server guide before starting the new instance. Now I able to update successfully. But when the server attempts to start afterwards, I get the following message: “Unable to complete task. The task could not be completed: Starting Ark Survival Ascended…–State: 3. Application failed to start.”
Errors I see in logs:
[Generic Warning] : The application stopped unexpectedly. Exit code 5
[Generic Warning] : Application failed to start 2 times, not restarting.
[Core Error] : SocketException
[Core Error] : [0] (SocketException) : Connection refused
[Core Error] : at Net.Sockets.Socket.Send (Byte buffer, Int32 offset, Int32 size, Net.Sockets.SocketFlags socketFlags)
at Net.Sockets.UdpClient.Send (Byte dgram, Int32 bytes)
at ModuleShared.MetricsInfoPublisher.UpdateMetrics ()
[RCON Error] : Source RCON failed to connect:
Connection refused.

Reproduction Steps

  • Started new Ark Survival Ascended instance.
  • Configure AMP instances to run in docker, then launch new ASA instance.
  • Update instance and then launch to receive error.
