Generate MapService tiles cache from another machine than the server itself

I have a MapService published on ArcGIS Server v10.3. I would like to generate the tiles cache for this service. For an unknown reason ArcGIS Server CPUs are getting overloaded to 99%-100% after a few day of processing.


When that happen, all the other services published to ArcGIS Server are not responding very well until I kill the tool that generate the tiles. Then, I can restart the tool and continue to generate the tiles for another few days before the CPUs get overloaded again.


I would like to know if there is a way to generate the tiles for a MapService from another machine, like a virtual machine with an ArcGIS Desktop license and a writing access to the server drive disk.


The generate time is not really important. I would like to prevent the tiles generation process to have a negative impact on all the services.
