I am trying to overwrite the existing service but I am getting the error below. The python version I am using is 3.5 and ArcGIS PRO version is 2.0. I am also attaching the Python script I am using.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "\\i-file\Sprint\Network\02\NGN\RingConstruction\AlteryxScripts\", line 56, in <module>
arcpy.UploadServiceDefinition_server(r"\\i-file\Sprint\Network\02\NGN\RingConstruction\DarkFiberProgressReport\NNI\", "My Hosted Services", "NNItest", "EXISTING","NNI", "STARTED")

arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 001398: Service name 'NNItest' already exists.
Failed to execute (UploadServiceDefinition).

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Manjari,

It looks like your script is attempting to publish a new service rather than overwrite a service.  You should take a look at code sample example 3 in the following documentation, which provides syntax needed to overwrite a service.

Have you also thought about using the ArcGIS API for Python? Using the arcgis python module installed with Pro, you can utilize a much simpler workflow and script.

Hope this helps!
