Hi all. I've recently stood up a new ArcServer. I've posted a few test services that have gone well. I want to overwrite one, or even replace it, but I keep being told that:
I've registered it! I swear!
Why is this happening? How can I convince it I've really registered it?
Thanks in advance.

After you've registered the data store in ArcMap, can you login to ArcGIS Server Manager (as an admin) and check the status of the data store?
ArcGIS Server Manager > Site > Data Store. Do you see the new data store listed?
Hope this helps,
Why does the name of your registered database say [Managed]? Did you include that part in your name or did AGS automatically add that to your datasource name? I ask because none of the registered data sources that work for me have [Managed] in their name.
Data Store connections can be a "Registered Database" of a "Registered Manager Database" ...the process is similar and you can import a connection file. On this Data Store page, click on the Help button in the upper right to get more help (local install).
ArcGIS for Server (Windows) - Registering your data with ArcGIS Server using Manager
You can use Manager to register data directories and databases with ArcGIS Server. Data registration provides the server with a list of locations where the source data for your services originates. Data registration provides several benefits:
- Data registration helps you validate whether your services are using data locations known and approved by the server administrator.
- Data registration provides automatic remapping of the paths to your data when you publish (and thereby upload) your map, globe, model, or other resources to the server.
Registering your data directories does not grant the ArcGIS Server account permissions to access your data. You'll need to give the ArcGIS Server account at least read permissions to any folder that you register. If you're registering a database, the type of permissions you need to grant depends on what type of database you are using and what type of authentication you are using to connect. See Making your data accessible to ArcGIS Server to learn more about the scenarios where you need to apply permissions.
