I am new to ArcGIS Server. I am trying to publish a map service to ArcGIS Server 10.1. I have connected to our ArcGIS Server through ArcCatalog, and registered the data (a file gdb) I am using. (I had to place a copy of the data on our Server). I have publisher permissions and I set read/write permissions for the gdb in Windows Explorer. So from the MXD I choose Share As>Map Service>Publish a Service>I choose my connection and a name for the service>I use the default folder, and then I click Continue. Then nothing happens. According to the tutorials, I should see the Service Editor window and see the Map Service in ArcCatalog, and I see nothing. I get no error message. I do not see the map service listed in ArcCatalog or in ArcGIS Server Manager.

Could someone help?
