The question is SuperUser material, but not because it does not mention the word "server."
The fact that it doesn't mention if his instance of Lion is the server version doesn't discount it immediately. In my experience with Apple Servers, it's not uncommon for Apple SysAdmins to refer to the OS as it's base name and leave off the "server" designation.
(As an aside: That's also equally confusing when people run a legit server with the non "Server" OS because it's not a cut-and-dried case of "Not a Server OS - Instant Close!" It's no less legit than using Debian Etch to run a server off of which could just as easily be running on someone's laptop.)
The fact that the question is at such a basic level, however, does relegate it to SuperUser.
Server Fault is for system administrators and desktop support
professionals, people who manage or maintain computers in a
The question, rephrased, says "I cannot perform a basic operation with a basic component of a computer operating system." That is not the earmark of a professional systems administrator. However, I'm not about to make this a discussion about the OP's professional status. Even if he is a professional systems administrator, the fundamental nature of the question does not in any way distinguish it as being for the crowd of people that ServerFault is targeted at.
Not distinctly SysAdmin related. Needs to be on SuperUser.
I believe this is a finer case that might be harder to distinguish for someone outside of the SysAdmin / ServerFault realm. Thanks for asking, though!
