What is the 'overwrite service' workflow when using service definitions?

Hi All, 


I have a server environment where we publish services via the 'create service definition - no server connection" in ArcMap, hand the .SD file off to an admin that then publishes the service via the web manager.  


There's the option to 'overwrite a service' from ArcMap but it seems like this is only avialable for the connected workflow.  Is this process just a wizard that does the following steps in automation:


1. Create service definition

2. Import from existing service

3. Delete existing

4. Publish new


So our workflow to "overwrite" in this disconnected environment is those 4 manual steps or is there a shortcut?
