Arma 3 Exile Logging issue

Question

Hello there everyone!

So i am having a little bit of an issue im hoping someone here can help me with.

So i use to use TADST to always start up my server and get it going but doing this meant i would have to go back and stop it and restart it. This got very frustrating so i came up with a new idea. In the server_config.pbo i put tru for auto restart and the restart timer for how long it took to let the server load before it accepted players. Doing this worked for about 3 restarts so that was another issue and to add on to that one the server clock would keep counting down so once it hit 00:00 for the first time and did its restart it would keep going and saying -00:01, -00:02, -00:03 etc... so to fix this i put these settings.

class RCON
	{
		/*
			Note that for this to work you need to have serverCommandPassowrd defined in config.cfg and BE enabled
		*/

		// This needs to match config.cfg serverCommandPassword
		serverPassword = "Darkally7";

		// Autolocks server until its ready to accept players
		useAutoLock = 1;

		// Server will autoLock at that time before restart (minutes)
		restartAutoLock = 2;

		/*
			Number of hours and minutes of your restart period.

			Examples:

			{4, 0} = Every 4 hours
			{1, 30} = Every one and a half hour (who the hell would do this?)
		*/
		restartTimer[] = {4, 0};

		/*
			Kicks players before restart to prevent gear loss.
			We strongely recommend to use this!

			0 = off
			1 = on
		*/
		useAutoKick = 1;

		/*
			Number of minutes before the server kicks players that did
			not disconnect before the restart. Should at least be two
			minutes!
		*/
		kickTime = 2;

		/*
			Self-explanatory

			0 = off
			1 = on
		*/
		useRestartMessages = 1;

		/*
			Number of minutes before the restart to inform your players.

			Only use full minutes here. Value like 5.5 have not been tested.
		*/
		restartWarningTime[] = {15, 10, 5, 3}; 

		/* 
			If set to 1 server will execute '#shutdown',
			to try to shutdown the server
		*/

		useShutdown = 1;
	};

Now after putting all of that the server would restart every 4 hours. At the bottom i put "useShutdown =1;" this would combat my clock issue i had allowing the server to have a fresh restart. To launch the server back up i used a custom ".bat" file like this.

@echo off
cls

color 0A

set gameserver=Arma Exile

title %gameserver% Auto Restart / Process Checker

:end
"C:\Users\steph\Desktop\Arma 3 Server\arma3server.exe" "-mod=@Exile;@CUP Units;@CUP Vehicles;@CUP Weapons;@CBA_A3;@Ryanzombies;@Arma Enhanced Movement" "-config=C:\Users\steph\Desktop\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default\TADST_config.cfg""-cfg=C:\Users\steph\Desktop\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default\TADST_basic.cfg" "-profiles=C:\Users\steph\Desktop\Arma 3 Server\TADST\default" -netlog -filePatching -pid=pid.log -ranking=ranking.log "-mod=@Exile;@CUP Units;@CUP Vehicles;@CUP Weapons;@CBA_A3;@Ryanzombies;@Arma Enhanced Movement" -autoInit -filePatching -servermod=@AdminToolkitServer;@ExileServer;

What this will do is when the Arma3Server.exe is no longer running the server will relaunch it using the startup parameter inside of the launch parameter filed.

This was going to be used incase the server crashes but also the .bat file will wait every 4 hours to force shut down on the Arma3Server.exe incase the  

"useShutdown =1;" fails to work. So in the end the entire program works just like the TADST of course using the extracted setup files from TADST. Now that you know the work around at the end of the .bat file 

starting from "@if exist net.log goto rotatelog else end" and down this 16 lines of code is used to save the "LOG" files from the console. It works but unlike the TADST where it would save the next log file as a higher number for example 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. My bat file saves it as 2, 8, 5, 7, 9, 1, etc... is there anyone that can look over this and help me out.
