Starting on May 1st, 2021 we will be asking users who are presently connected to Master Server 3101 to
start making plans to move your devices (Repeaters, Hotspots, Bridges) to the new 3104 master server.
The reason for this change is due to an unforeseen circumstance which is requiring us to decommission
the 3101 Master Server on or around Dec 1st, 2021. This should provide users plenty of advance notice
to begin moving to the new 3104 Master server which is in the Chicago data center.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may provide some users but with the advanced notice we hope
the transition will allow for all to move by Dec 1st, 2021.

The New 3104 Information for repeater owners and hotspot users:
IPV4: 162.248.88.117
IPV6: Not Available at this time (future announcement will be made when available)
Domain: 3104.repeater.net
Location: Chicago


Hotspot Users: You may change to the new 3104 Master Server any time before December 1, 2021. You will need to
change master servers in the drop down under DMR Configuration to “BM_3104_United_States” for pi-star users and “3104 US” for Openspot/BlueDV Users. You may also need to re-enter your password as Pi-Star might remove the password when making configuration changes. Please be patient as hotspot vendors update their server list as you may not find the new server initially.

Repeater Owners: Motorola and Hytera repeaters: You will need to update the IP Address or Domain Name in CPS/code plug and save / push your changes to the repeaters (Motorola and/or Hytera Repeaters).
MMDVMHost repeaters: You will need to update the configuration file with the new IP or Domain Name
to the 3104 master server.

Pi-Star repeaters: You will need to change master servers in the drop down under DMR Configuration to
BM_3104_United_States. You may also need to re-enter your password as Pi-Star might remove the
password when making configuration changes.

Bridge Connections:
OpenBridge: Please plan to move your connection by November 31st, 2021 by placing a ticket at
https://support.brandmeister.network. You will need to change the IP or Domain to the new server.

CBridge: Please plan to move your connection by November 31st, 2021 by placing a ticket at
https://suport.brandmeister.network. You will need to change the inbound connection name to BM-US3104.

XLX Servers: Please plan to move your connection by November 31st, 2021 by placing a ticket at
https://support.brandmeister.network. This move will require you to update the IP or domain name in
your configuration. (XLXxxx 3104.repeater.net X).

YSF Reflectors: No Changes are needed on your end. Your connections have already been moved to
BM3104.

NXDN Reflectors: No Changes are needed on your end. Your connections have already been moved to

BM3104.WiresX: No Changes are needed on your end. Your connections have already been moved to BM3104.

Note: Users on 3102 and 3103 are not affected by this change. Only users who are using 3101 will need
to move their connection to 3104 before December 1, 2021 or may of course change sooner once it
displays in your hotspot master server dropdowns
