How to copy any service from one server to another

Hi All,

We have ArcGIS server 10.2.2 installed on 5 servers along with one load balancer. Whenever there is a need to publish a new service or overwrite any existing service, currently we do it one by one on all the servers. Is there a way to publish/overwrite service on one server and copy it to other 4 servers?

Thanx in advance

I don't know if this will do exactly what you want to do, but you can copy services from one server to another - here's information on doing that:

You will probably need to start them manually; however, there's a tool you may be able to use, or at least re-purpose, that can start services automatically:
