Hi, I've just recently installed OS X Server 10.5.4 and all went fine, etc etc, but when I try and open Server Preferences it asks me for the server name, which I put as Server.local (I've even tried 192.168.1.11 (the ip)) and my user name and password. It then comes up with the error message 'An error occured while trying to get the server's status Authentication succeeded but an error occured while trying to get the state of the server. Please try connecting again'. Any help on this would be massively helpful, as I have no idea whats the problem. Many thanks Edd edit. I forgot to note that it is installed on a G5 Tower 1.8ghz Single. No remote servers etc are involved.
