This whole arcgis thing seems very hard for me, so maybe what i'm asking is something very very simple.
I have a model that uses the "copy features" tool and writes down a shape file. When i run it as a tool, the shapefile is created. But when i export the tool as a service, if invoke the service the shapefile is not updated.
if i delete the shapefile created when i ran the tool, the service invokation does not create the shapefile either. No errors, no logs, no nothing. Maybe i'm missing some conceptual stuff here.
