well this is a new one....
Error: JSON object returns an error. Error returned when starting service ServiceName.MapServer.
we have been running update scripts via python not for over a year without any issue, now all of a sudden were seeing this "timeout" error when trying to restart a service after it was successfully stopped and updated.
ArcGIS for Desktop: 10.2.2
ArcGIS for Server: 10.2.2
anyone else run into such an error?
