I was running a OS X Server 10.6 Snow Leopard and then upgraded to OS X Lion. Since upgrade when I click on Server App and choose "Manage services on this Mac mini" I am unable to connect/manage. The screen just flickers.

I just found my fix.
To check if servermgrd is loaded, see the output of this command in Terminal:
sudo launchctl list | grep -q com.apple.servermgrd && echo loaded || echo not loaded
If the output is "not loaded", load the com.apple.servermgrd job into launchd with this command:
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.servermgrd.plist

Very helpful. Any idea why servermgrd might not have been loaded? Your resolution fixed the same issue for me which appeared after I made some network IP assignment changes. I'm a bit green with OSX Server (and of course Lion in general) so any info or details on how you found the solution would be helpful. Thanks.
