I've installed ArcGIS Server 10.1 on a Linux based VM, it stated it was successful but I then realize that the service failed to start.

I checked the service.log inside "(ArcGIS Home folder)>framework>etc" and got this error:
Tue Mar 26 14:43:27 EDT 2013:Registering and starting log service.
WARNING: Could not connect to Log service. Writing log message to console.
 <Msg time="2013-03-26T14:44:23,444" type="DEBUG" code="9999" source="Admin" process="13200" thread="1" methodName="" machine="" user="" elapsed="">Server machine is not ready for synchronization.</Msg>

And I believe it's because of this that the server failed to start and why I cannot connect to the Manager page.

I have IPTables turned off, and httpd started... and I get nothing... Any help is really appreciated.
