Network Analyst Server Extension : Network Dataset

Discussion created by jeremiahglascock16 on Sep 4, 2013
I am trying to set up a geoprocessing task on our ArcGIS server. I followed the tutorials on how to publish the service. However the geoprocessing service is a nationwide problem so i need to use the full extent to the network dataset. I understand that this file is too large to copy to the server when i am publishing it, so i am looking into the necessary steps to take to have a server based national network dataset. Right now we have individual desktop Business Analyst Standard. Do i need to create my own network dataset, copy to a geodatabase and copy to the server or is there another solution?
