I'm working on Arc 10 server

I'm trying to add a GIS server to the add layers window in Create Web Application - Layers. The Type is ArcGIS server Local and gives me an error "Unable to coonect to server"

I also can't add a new service and get an Configuration Error of: ******.geodataserver can not be started. Server Object instance creation failed on machine 'soc'. Unable to init from \\******\****\***.gbd

Well I hit finish and the service show up on teh manager service window but get the above error.

Any help would be great first time doing this through GIS server. I used ArcIMS before.
