In Xserve and some Mac Pro configurations where the Mac OS X Server operating system is installed on an SSD drive and data for services is housed on internal drives, an internal RAID, or an external RAID, some services may not start up properly or may not be able to find the associated data during the startup process.
Follow these steps to work around this issue:
- Turn off the affected services using Server Admin.
- Restart the computer.
- When the computer has fully restarted, use Server Admin to turn on the services.
