    Hi all,

    I've updated the my server software of my 10.8.2 to version 2.1 through the App Store.
    When starting the Server.app it says to me that it needs to be configured. So I follow the steps as you would normally, but when it goes configuring for real, I see my clock go back for at least 16 hours and the configuration hangs up my system completely (with rainbow cursor and all ).

    So I decided to reboot and try again. But now with a top -o cpu running aside.
    Once again it changes my time. And it hangs just after starting the postgres database software. The terminal window hangs as well and slowly it hangs up my complete system.

    This is what the log says:

    Code:

    Not this one, but I had a nightmare of emails not working after updating to 2.1 (had to revert to time machine backup thus downgrade to 2.0) so I don't trust this release at all. Perhaps next point-release will gain my trust again?
