Mac OSX Server Admin Agent not launching

While attempting to disable Windows Sharing on my Mac OSX 10.1.4 server,  the Server Admin Agent crashed.  Now I am unable to connect to it.  It gives me an error to the effect that the "server is no longer available at 192.168.X.X'"  I have not changed my IP address, so what gives?

I am trying to not restart as I have many Mac users connected.

Will there be a time in the near future that you wont have a bunch of users connected? Tonite sometime? Just give the machine a reboot and see if that clears up any wackyness.

whenever you can find some times, I suggest you do a utility disk scan on your box, fix the permission and such, I found that it helped in alot of cases.  How you do that is boot up from CD then choose disk utility and fix it from there.

Actually restarting did fix it. Should've known.
