ArcGIS Server ERROR: service failed to start

I have recently installed and configured ArcGIS Server 10.1.  I also upgraded my arcGIS desktop to 10.1, it is an arcview license (not sure if this may be the cause).  I took an mxd file and published as a service, successfully.  However the service did not start and reports and error.

ERROR: service failed to start, ServiceStarter thread timeout

The message says to go to the server connection (I assume in ArcCatalog) and start the published service manually.  I right-click the service and hit start.  Again, same error.

ERROR: service failed to start, ServiceStarter thread timeout

What is the service starter?  Am I forgetting to configure something?  I'm stumped.
