Cant login to Server app after 10.8.1 Update

:confused: HELP!!!!

Just updated a ML Server to 10.8.1 and now when I launch the server app I get
"Server requires OS X 10.8. The server you’re trying to connect to is not running OS X 10.8. Install OS X 10.8 on the server and try again."

Oh dear Apple... Are you sleeping?

I have the same problem. I updated yesterday and just now tree to login to the server app and get the same msg. I sure hope Apple is working on this because i need control of my server back very soon. I dont want to TM back but i can if i need too.

Thanks for sharing. FYI: As as a matter of practice I don't upgrade my server for a minimum of four weeks after an update for this exact reason. I like to wait and see what breaks. 10.8.1 didn't look like it would fix anything my server needed fixed anyway.

Anyway, thanks again for posting.

Ya I know. I used to do that with Windows server and stay 2 or 3 behind but I didn't think I would need to do that with Mac.
Thanks.

since updateing my mac mini server to 10.8 i have been getting OSX Server app in the app store showing up as an update... up until today it would always fail to install saying that server app is already installed.... as off 10 minutes ago the update installed for me.... only issue now is terminal.... i run a command and it gives me this error:


[ERROR]<CPPathUtils.c:526>The device-file for this operating system, 'osx-12.1.0.xml', was not found. An attempt to revert to a previous revision of the OS device-file: 'osx-12.0.0.xml' has been made. Please file a Radar report with Apple, on the 'CoreProfile' component, version 'X'.

but commends do run.....
i get the same error on my macbook pro without server.app


ive noticed that my build version of the server app changed from 2.0.21? GM Build to 2.0.23

ML Server 10.8.1 update

Thanks for the idea Paul117,

I looked at the app store to see if there was an update and there was not.

It did show a new download for the Server app so i did and it replaced the old with the new and all is well now.
it is on 2.0.23

btw to all that are saying thats a reckless thing to do your right. I can do it because the server is not in production and is just a toy.

Also Terminal is working with no problems.
