I've just recently installed ArcGIS Server 10 on RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. After install, I copied over the cache and map documents and attempted to create the services in Server Manager. Here's where things get strange... I was able to successfully create and start the World_Physical_Map service, hit the REST API and navigate the map. However, that's the *only* service that works. When I try to do World_Shaded_Relief or World_Topo_Map, for example, I get the dreaded:

"Service '<Service_Name>' of type 'MapServer' does not exist or is inaccessible."

What's stranger is that when I hit the base REST URL at http://<server>:8399/arcgis/rest/services the only available service is the World_Physical_Map even though I've set all 9 of them up exactly the same.

Anyway, I've searched the forums and Googled it but am coming up empty handed. Any suggestions at all are greatly appreciated.
