Possible To Publish GP Service Without Copying Data?

I'm trying to publish an updated Python script GP service with an added parameter. This service uses about 10GB of data, which is already contained in a central data repository accessible to the server. I've tried to publish the updated service through ArcMap and with a Python script and I can't get it to not re-copy the data over to the server. I've tried unchecking the "allow data to be copied to the server" box on the ArcGIS server manager and setting copy_data_to_server =False in my sddraft definition in Python. It's still copying over the data. I just need the service itself, and I'll alter the Python script data paths once it's published.
