mosaic dataset added to another mosaic dataset loses color

Question asked by on Jun 18, 2014
I have a Mosaic Dataset of Hawaii data that has an Attribute Table function assigned to it to give it color and classification.  It looks like this:

Now, if I start with a new blank Mosaic Dataset and add my Hawaii Mosaic Dataset to it, my Hawaii data appears as gray scale. The color and classification info is gone.  Here's a screenshot.

Does anybody know why this is happening and how to fix it?

In case anybody's wondering why I want to do this, it's because I have 250 Mosaic Datasets to publish on ArcGIS Server 10.2.  But I've discovered publishing that many Mosaic Datasets brings my server (32 Gig RAM, Windows 2003) to its knees.  So my idea was to group common Mosaic Datasets together into a single Mosaic Dataset so I end up with only 10 or so Mosaic Datasets to publish.

Any help on this matter (either on the color/grayscale question or how to publish a boat load of Mosaic Datasets) will really be appreciated.

Thank you.
