Hi all. Using ArcMap 10.2, Server 10.5


I've been working on a folder of 10 services, and had a domain change and needed to republish all of them. I had zero issues on the first few, but one service in particular is giving me issue.


When overwriting the existing service, I get the generic publishing error error 001369. When going in to look at the existing service on Server Manager, it is running, functions fine, but I am unable to stop it. It no longer has a description underneath it, and there is also a copy made that functions perfectly with the same name and a date/time stamp on the end of it. Example:

When trying to stop the service, it gives me a generic error message 'Error while stopping service':


It makes me wonder if my service has somehow become corrupt? Is that possible, and how can i find a solution?
