I need to port some published dataset on an arcgis server service for analysis on a arcgis desktop machine.
1. is it possible to extract data layer (.shp or .mdb) from an arcgis published service.
2. are there tools to extract and convert to .shp or .mdb
Any help is appreciated.

You will read that Jake Skinner created a tool to do just that:
