Export Web Map JSON

Hi all,

I've been trying to use the Export Web Map Tool in ArcToolbox to export one of my local ArcGIS Server maps to PDF.

Every time I keep getting the error 'Invalid JSON in WebMap'

Rather handily, ESRI do not actually say where the JSON is for local maps, but just keep referring to what a generic specification should look like, which to anyone who is a webmap novice is about as handy as a hot poker up the rear.

So does anybody know where exactly the JSON is for a map created with ArcGIS Server?

The location I tried was:
http://<server name>/arcgis/rest/services/MyMap/MapServer?f=pjson

And I have also tried every other JSON link I could find whilst browsing around, but with no luck.

Any help appreciated in what should probably be a simple task.
