Using a TS3 Admin Token
First Join/No Other Admins
When you get your admin token, and join your server, if the original token has not been used a message box will pop up asking you to enter an admin token.
Copy and enter your admin token and press 'OK', this will then give you admin over your server.
If you have created a new token for whatever reason, whilst logged in to your server, click the permissions menu at the top, at the bottom of this menu, you will see Use Privilege Key, click this and it will open a message box similar to first join, enter your admin token exactly as it appears, and press ok. The admin token will now grant you the permissions assigned to it.
Creating a New Token
If, for any reason, you are no longer an administrator on your server, you must create a new admin token. This can be done via the control panel.
First, login to the panel, click on Voice Servers and then you should see something similar to the following:
Click on Teamspeak Browser, this will take you to a section where you can adminstrate your server
Along the left hand side, click on tokens, then at the top of the page, click new token
Select the type of token, and the group its for. If you want it for server admin, leave as shown above, you can enter a description if you want, but it is not required. Press save and this will generate an admin token for you, you can then use login to your TS3 server and use the token.
Getting a Token
If you are using a shared service, your admin token will be sent to you via email automatically when your server is set up.
If you have installed and/or use the service via the control panel then to get your admin token, login to your panel, click on Voice Services and then locate your service, you may have to click the tab at the top to switch from Teamspeak Services (integrated) to Voice Services (dedicated, including Mumble)
Click on your service, inside this you should see a Log Viewer, click this.
A page similar to this will then be displayed:
You should see at least 2 log files, possibly 3, on the right hand side, click Stream File or Download on the log file ending with _1, your admin token will then be displayed.
From the Desktop
If you run your service from the desktop via RDP or VNC, either by installing yourself from the TS3 site, or via the panel and then running manually, then the way you get your admin token is different.
On your first start up, a popup will appear and give you all your information, copy this and save it somewhere safe.
If you miss this screen, or want to reset it completely, delete the ts3server.sqlitedb in the root folder of your TS3 installation.
You can also find the server admin token in the logs directory, it will be the earliest log ending in _1, open this file in any text editor and your token will be displayed to you.
If you retrieve your token from the log file, you will not be shown you your serverquery login, you can create a new one once logged in to your server, or you can use a command line to change it. This is covered here.
