    SessionState switching to PostRace

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if this is a bug, but it seems like the dedicated server often (not every time) switches its SessionState to PostRace after a host migration. This seems to cause issues for some (strangely not all) connecting players. The connecting player would then get disconnected right after loading. On some cases the new host gets a post-race screen which disappears after some time and puts the player back into pits. After leaving the pits again, AI takes over.

    Is this a known issue?

    Just happened again after 2 hours into a practice session. Host leaves, admin is promoted to a different user and then the SessionState switches to PostRace causing all sorts of issues.

    No errors or unusual log messages.

    Alright. Apparently this bug has been around since the first Project Cars. I just wrote a script that restarts the server automatically if this clusterfrell happens. That ruins the fun for everyone on track, but what can I do?

    I'm a bit disappointed that the dedicated server still doesn't get some love by the devs. It's a really well thought out piece of software. But it seems like it was never finished.

    I think I've seen this same thing on peer to peer servers too. Host migration in general is broken, this is just another symptom.

    It's happening way too often. Almost every second host migration ends in a broken session!

    Is there any way to reset the SessionState somehow via the lua or http api? That could potentially be a workaround.

    Did somebody look in to this? I'd be happy to provide some logs and/or additional info. I'm on Discord as well if that helps.
