ArcGIS Server 10.3.1 & Desktop ArcGIS 10.3.1
I'm confused as to how ArcGIS Server and the local data and/or .mxd interact after publishing.
I publish a map service where the local .mxd points towards feature classes within a local file geodatabase. I can edit one of the feature classes and republish the .mxd using the overwrite option. However, in order to edit the .mxd itself, (add or delete layers, or tables) I must first shut the published service down, before I can save the .mxd.
Is this expected behavior? I was under the impression that once published with data copied to ArcGIS server the 'chord is cut'. I guess I'm under the wrong impression?
