Yeah, I know you have all seen this one before.

So what does one do when your Server Admin refuses to connect to your server?

I checked my DNS and it resolves properly,

I tried connecting using IP,

In the command line I can ping, no problems,

WGM works just fine,

my share points work just fine, & finally all my users are not expereicing any issues (other and their share points keep coming up as question marks on the docks).


This is definitly a Server Admin problem.


Anyone got any ideas?

Please don't leave me hangin'


BTW, this is a local intranet, not connected to the internet.

    are you using server admin on the same machine or a different?

    If same, try connecting to:


    you can try deleting the Server Admin prefs


    try reliading servermgrd, one way:

         sudo killall servermgrd

    I have a vague recollection of a problem with the server time server


    If the NTP server was enabled on the server and an external timeserver also chosen to keep the server NTP server in sync

    The server NTP server would stop and time on the clients and server would gradually drift out of sync

    The only way I could resolve it was to disable using an external time server
