After installing ArcGIS Server 10 Service Pack 2, I am finding that newly published services are not automatically appearing in the REST services directory http://myserver/ArcGIS/rest/services.
I've turned on verbose logging and there doesn't appear to be any technical issues with the simple (new) MXD I am trying to publish.
I can workaround the issue by logging into the rest admin interface http://myserver/ArcGIS/rest/admin then selecting 'Clear Cache Options'  and then 'Clear Cache Now' and then select 'Apply Settings'.  The newly published service is then visible.

If anyone knows how to get the services to appear automatically again then please let me know.
