    Here's a screenshot of the server admin pointing to a Snow Leopard server.
    And here's a Lion Server.

    That's a LOT of stuff missing...

    You may download all the rest services

    Hey I have read the information this morning that Lion Server loads up with a few services only and should be downloading other services from a location.

    Link to that location was given in that page. I tried to navigate to it, but i lost my track.

    Good Luck finding it. All I could say, it is anticipated to loose those jumbo list of services vanishing from Admin Panel.

    That's just the server admin tools. Services like MySQL are just gone. Even the web pane on the Lion server admin tools is gone, which is where you can set up all your advanced options. They seriously dumbed it down. Luckily, we can still do everything through the command line, but you might as well just run a Linux server now.

    I am sure, there is support for those services on Lion OS Server.

    Well, when you say that, all that we can do is write a start up script for all the services to run those services using a shell script or as an start up script.

    PostgreSQL is listed on that link

    I can concur link is 404.

    This should NOT come as a surprise ... there is at least 2 fairly large and detailed threads by 4 members on this very site; 3 of which are full administrators (certified) and another who hosted and went ballistic checking ever detail out. There are some things listed above they've found months ago but wondering if they've found solutions they where after? hmm.

    This is true, but some light Googling for the 10.7 Server Admin Tools turned this up: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1419
