Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2009 7:19 AM (in response to keith greenawalt)Exact same problem here.
No need for Jabber (iChat) but it's gonna fill up my logfile, and slow down the server!
Any help?Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.1), iPhone Developer - 100sounds.com
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2009 7:38 AM (in response to keith greenawalt)Lets make that folder, shall we. The folder I have is this:
drwxrwxr-x 8 _jabber _jabber 272 Oct 20 10:28:43 2009 jabberd/
so do the following, from terminal, typing YOUR password when asked for:
`sudo mkdir -p /var/run/jabberd`
`sudo chown jabber:jabber /var/run/jabberd`
`sudo chmod 775 /var/run/jabberd`
Errors will stop at that point. If you like you could check in that folder with something like
`/bin/ls -Al /var/run/jabberd/`
and you should see a multitude of files in there (within the following 10 seconds) all ending in pid (*.pid)

Same here, brand new mac mini with 10.6 server.... ichat is not cooperating.....
Did this solve the problem?
All options for ichat are greyed out and there is no start/stop button in the service in serveradmin..leopard, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2010 3:01 PM (in response to keith greenawalt)Tried what you suggested and it seemed to stop until reboot and problem again evident in system log.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2010 7:47 AM (in response to techgal)I was so hopeful!... Still stuck.
Thanks though.mac mini server, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2010 10:48 AM (in response to keith greenawalt)The only other suggestion I would have is to double check that dns of yours. changeip -checkhostname in terminal. I find that many if not all of the problems that I have seen point to faulty dns setup.leopard, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 17, 2010 11:07 AM (in response to techgal)That fixed it! I knew there was a DNS issue, but I thought it was the reverse.
Thanks, Techgal!! You are awesome.mac mini server, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2010 12:05 PM (in response to techgal)Thanks for the info, it was a DNS problem.
I added the hostname reported by the command "hostname" in /etc/hosts like this:
sudo vi /etc/hosts

Currently Being ModeratedApr 19, 2010 11:32 PM (in response to OliverSL)You really should not edit the hosts file since your covering over a problem. Best to ensure that the reverse of the IP address resolves to the name of your server - that is how Apple want it to work.Mainly xserve's and mac mini's, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2010 12:14 PM (in response to Tim Harris)Should I configure that the DNS server on the OSX Server?Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2010 4:31 AM (in response to OliverSL)Yes, if that is the DNS server that you are using.Mainly xserve's and mac mini's, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
