I am trying to set up ArcGIS for Server 10.1. If I publish a service using the 'copy data to the server' I have no trouble publishing a service. Since the data and the ArcGIS for Server 10.1 software on on the same machine, I do not want to have duplicate copies of my data.  I want to register my folders (containing file geodatabases) in Server.  I cannot seem to make this work!

I have Server connected to one folder that contains several file geodatabases.
This image confirms the connection folder connection in the Server Manager.

When I try to publish a service from ArcMap using data only stored in that connected folder I get a high severity message that the "Layer's data source is not registered with the server and data will be copied to the server.".  If I try to then register the folder in ArcMap I get a "Folder is already registered with the server" message.  I can change the name of the data source at which time I get this error...[ATTACH=CONFIG]20754[/ATTACH].

Any help registering my folders would be appreciated.
