I have recently upgraded My Xserve from 10.6.8 to 10.7.5 and it all went haywire. After I installed and updated everything to lion I lost general control of most of the system. I can log in as an admin and client file shares are intact but my "Users" folder is locked and my admin account – though it can log in and install, cannot get access to it's home folder. I can't seem to open system preferences to create a new user, the jabber server won't let anyone connect through Messages and none of the client users are modifiable in the Server app.

Xserve, Mac OS X (10.7.5), 6 Gb Ram, 2.5 Tb HD, 2.26 Mhz Quad
