Hmmm...I finally got mine to start, once I pulled the mod list. Now I am slow walking the server, by adding in some of the mods and then restarting. I will take me 3 to 4 restarts to pull it off, since a few a large mods (but great mods).
Well, that was not fun, but I final got the server running. I had to bring in mods in groups, let it get fully started, and then shut down each time.
