Python GPService SDE Connection

I am trying to publish a GPService from a python script. I am having with the service connecting to SDE. I was having trouble so I added the Test Connection section to see what path was being used. It seems like it is not getting the connection info from the SDE file. The script runs fine in ArcMap and I have the SDE file in the same location on the server as it is my dev machine. Any ideas?
