I was just wondering whether anyone else has managed to publish from an earlier version of Desktop to ArcGIS Server. Reading the ESRI documentation this shouldn't be possible but whilst doing some testing using Desktop 10.3.1 with AGS 10.4.1 I have managed to create a very basic model and publish it as a geoprocessing service. I have then run this GP service in Desktop 10.3.1 and it works and have also added this service to a widget in Portal 10.4.1 and it runs fine. I am an administrator in Portal.
