Registered Database Issue - Remapping Publisher database to Server database

I have been trying to register a database in ArcGIS server 10.1 so that the Published database connection is remapped to the server database connection automatically during publishing. Our current setup is that the publisher database is an Oracle - SDE database on a development box and the server database is also an Oracle - SDE database but on a test box where we manually replicate the data from the development box to the test box. When we check the settings of the registered database in ArcCatalog, under the GIS Server's Sever Properties - Data Store Tab, everything indicates that we should see our database sources automatically remapped during the publishing process. However, when we view the services workspace, the service is indicating that it was not remapped. I can visually confirm this when I alter the test boxes datasets so that they are obviously different to the development's datasets, however, the  published service still shows what we have on our development box.

Has anyone else seen or experienced a similar issue?

Our Environment is:

  • ArcGIS 10.1 SP # 1

  • ArcGIS Server 10.1 Standard Edition SP # 1 (tested on Linux and Windows)

  • ArcSDE 10.1 SP # 1, Oracle 11g
