Architecture:  ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 on RHEL Linux 6.5


I am unable to publish a map service using ArcCatalog (service definition file) or ArcMap itself.


Here are the errors:

Publishing failed.

ERROR: Unable to connect to publishing tools service.  Verify that the service is up and running.

Failed to execute (UploadServiceDefinition)


There are no errors produced in the AGS logs.


The Publishing tool is up and running even after I restarted the tool.


This service published fine on another AGS box that is essentially a clone.  I suspect the publishing tool somehow is corrupted.
