TF2 MvM Server config?
I'm trying to open up multiple server to run TF2 on this new MvM mode. I am very surprised that there is nowhere in this forum posted an official guide or server variables need to do that.
I think Valve should pay more attention to the server-side, how come they release something new and expected that the game server can keep up and manage to do it on their own without instruction?
If there is a special place for the server variables to look, please let me know.

The co-op mode is tied to the map configuration, not server configuration. Just choose your server to run a MvM map and you will be playing against bots.

So, is all that in your one single server.cfg file? I tried this in my file and spectators still joined:
hostname TF2 Server
And setting the process to run High priority with Media Player running in background seemed to help lag alot since my upload is only 512k. But I want to make reserved slots and be able to kick players but I don't know how. Can someone point me in the right direction?

There are also Steam Support Knowledgebase articles on the subject, lists of command line options and server variables on the Valve Developer site, and the Allied Modders site which I've found very helpful.
Valve has a long history with mods, and I think that their documentation is pretty thorough, to say nothing of the community's. It does take some time to find, though.
Oh, and on my server, I limit the number of players to 6 with this MvM lock plugin. You do have to install Metamod and Sourcemod, but those are pretty easy/standard. Drop the plugin into the <your server folder>\orangebox\tf\addons\sourcemod\plugins folder. Set the mvm_password variable to something in your server.cfg file.
