ArcGIS server Logs shows “Error handling request to service …..The service … was not found. Verify the service exists and is started.” Error.
I’m getting the error below from the logs of arcgis server :
“Error handling request to service 'Parcels_NonRegistered_02.MapServer'. The service 'Parcels_NonRegistered_02.MapServer' was not found. Verify the service exists and is started.”
What might be the issue?
This error typically means a request has come in for the service, but either the service is not started, or the service doesn't exist at all. If you can determine that the service doesn't exist, then an application has likely been written to access it. You'll need to check the IIS logs or whatever is in front of your Server for the originating IP address and determine if it's internal, have them look at their application and if it's external, determine if you can sort out what the IP is assigned to and consider blocking it.
