I have a TS3 server running on a Windows server. When the computer reboots we manually restart the TS3 server by logging in (it's in the Autorun). Howether, as different users log in on the Windows server the TS3 server looks different. It seems like Teamspeak does store different Serverlayouts (channels) and different permissions for each user on the Windows server...

How do I fix this?

You're going to want to make sure that the Teamspeak 3 server always runs as the same user.

This would be most easily achieved by running the server as a Windows service. I would recommend having a look at the Teamspeak 3 Service Wrapper.

@Urinprobe - Have you read the manual? – Ramhound Jul 18 '12 at 13:31
@Urinprobe: Either you create a new account specifically for the service, use your own account or use the SYSTEM account (if that is possible). – Oliver Salzburg Jul 18 '12 at 13:41
If I use my own account, will it still start when someone else loggs in instead of me? – Urinprobe Jul 18 '12 at 14:25
