Be aware that OS X Server
Authored by: st3phen on Feb 14, '07 08:38:32PM

is very, very reliant on being able to resolve it's own hostname via "reverse DNS"/Pointer Records. Server will lookup it's hostname for many reasons and will definitely slow or hang certain services until this resolution failure finally times-out. One of the most important things a standalone server needs is a properly-configured local DNS and to have it's IP configuration pointed at that DNS.
