Problem publishing first map service to new site

I've got a multi-machine 10.1 site that's been chugging along for a while.  It's got 20+ map/feature services working.

I've pulled one machine from that site and created a new, separate single machine site to do some testing of stuff.  Everything is like the first site (above) except my directories are at ....\arcgisserver_test_site and not the default ....\arcgisserver.  Same shared network drive, same everything.

When I fire up Arcmap and attempt to publish a map service to the new site, I get to the "Service Editor", successfully "analyze", click "publish" and get a "packaging succeeded, but publishing failed" error.  It also says, "Failed to execute.  Parameters are not valid.  Please consult the GP results Window..."

The GP results message says,

"Start Time: Thu Apr 04 09:02:11 2013
Failed to execute. Parameters are not valid.
ERROR 000735: Server: Value is required
Failed to execute (UploadServiceDefinition).
Failed at Thu Apr 04 09:02:11 2013 (Elapsed Time: 0.00 seconds)"

The help documentation on that error is not very helpful, simply reiterating that a parameter value required by the tool was missing.

Does anyone have insight into what is going on here?
