unsupported characters in mxd-name for service publishing

Discussion created by ganders on Oct 4, 2012

i try to publish a mxd containing "-" in its name. that won't work as "-" is reported to be an unsupported character.

the problem is: in arcgis server 10.0, this character was supported....

what am i supposed to do? i need to migrate to 10.1 in order to get the wmts-support. but changing the service-name is a no go (the current wms-service is called several hundred times every day)... is there some kind of a workaround for this issue?

best regards
