So I'm in the process of upgrading a Snow Leopard server to Mountain Lion (specifically, I'm setting up a new Mac mini from the Time Machine backup of an old, dead one). 10.8.3 has been installed on the new machine, all data and accounts have been migrated from the Time Machine backup and the Server app is currently "Configuring Services." But it's been stuck on "Upgrading Services" for about a day and a half now. There's no progress indicator to tell me what it's doing. I don't see any new files being created on my system. I know that until about 18 hours ago it was busy migrating the old server's IMAP mail (I could see it slowly being moved into its new location under /Library/Server/Mail/), but that process was completed yesterday as far as I can tell. Since then, the only hints I can see as to what's going on are periodic error messages in the system log about SSL/keychain issues. I don't know what to do now, I'm stuck. The installation of server tools does not appear to be complete since the "serveradmin" command isn't even available yet. Any idea what I can/should do now? Are there some hidden logs somewhere I can check?


Here's the error I keep getting (once a minute, it seems) in the system log:


imap-login: Error: /Applications/ --get-private-key-passphrase /etc/certificates/ m: Unable to find matching passphrase in the Keychain

log[6576]: imap-login: Error: apple_password_callback: /Applications/ terminated abnormally

log[6576]: imap-login: Fatal: Couldn't parse private ssl_key

dovecotd[6562]: master: Error: service(imap-login): command startup failed, throttling

Mac mini, OS X Server, Mountain Lion Server
