I can make a connection as a user "Use GIS Services" from ArcCatalog 10.0 to my new ArcGIS Server 10.1, but I cannot make a "Manage GIS Services" connection.
I get an error popup saying: We are unable to connect to:
http://blah blah blah
Error: Access Denied: The SOM service is not registered on machine <hostname>

It used to work when I had ArcGIS 9.3 and ArcGIS Server 9.3.
Does this mean I cannot manage or publish to ArcGIS Server 10.1 with ArcGIS 10.0 unless I pony up and upgrade my ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 to 10.1!!!??
