Same thing here. I eneded up force quitting the Server.app, and restarted the Mac. This has happened twice to me, both times when I added a new user.
Hope someone has a clue as to why this is happening.

This has happened to me as well - several times. File and folder permissions seems to be stuffed up in general.

Seeing this here in our Lion Server. Anyone have any resolution to this?
Is it safe to force quit + reboot server?

Same issue here too on 10.7.2 server on a mini server. Been giving that message for days and days. If client is cool with short disruption, bringing to 10.7.3 server and seeing if it make a difference.

10.7.3 displays the same behavior for me.

Ad me to the list. I am experiencing the same thing, 10.7.3.
About to crash it, see what happens.

I ran into the same issue with 10.7.3, I let it spin for 24 hours, then I called Apple Support and they had me do the following.
Open Terminal and run the following command: sudo serveradmin stop afp
Next in Terminal run the following command: sudo serveradmin stop smb
Force quit the Server.app and then restart it.
Everything is working fine now and the fix only took a minute to perform.

I followed this same process myself, but the issue just comes back the next time I make a change. This appears to be a serious flaw with Lion Server, or with the Server app itself. I'm wishing for better days when we did everything from Server Admin. I'm not happy with the Server app at all. It complicates the process of managing the server by introducing a third app to the mix. Server Admin and Workgroup Manager are really all I ever needed for day to day management.

I did find a workaround for this, however, it may not be practical for everyone. If you move everything off of the device that you want to share, format the drive using Disk Utility, and then create the sharepoint using the Server.app it will set up the sharepoint in a couple of minutes. After the sharepoint is set up then copy all of your data back onto the drive. I had to do this with only a small amount of data (only 3TB), so like I said this may not be practical for everyone. My server has been running flawlessly for a few weeks now after I did this.
