Pooling - number of instances for caching

I'm trying to cache a 10.1 map service that was created with the default 2 instances and then edited to 24.  I've restarted the service, and can see in both the web manager and the map service properties through ArcCatalog that the max number of instances is 24.  However, when I go to cache the service, the number can't be set to anything higher than 2.  When I change it I get an error that says "the number of instances available is less than the number of instances entered".  Ideas?  Bug?
