Trouble with the ConvertToMSD Function

Discussion created by bdl51 on Aug 19, 2011
I am having trouble getting the ConvertToMSD Function to work. Technically it works, but not in the long run of my script.

I use the converttomsd function to create an msd. I then publish this msd as a web service. However, the webservice does not show the map. But.. I can save the mxd to an msd in ArcMap, and then publish from my python script and it works. So the snag seems to be the converttomsd function,

I originally thought it was the publishmsdtoserver function, but I was wrong. Any ideas..... I can provide my code if necessary.
