Is it possible to create a new service definition file from an existing ArcGIS service?

I have a python script that updates data on a daily basis.  I have figured out how to restart/overwrite my existing service so that it will represent the change in the data.  However doing so uses the default settings for the new service and overwrites the settings I had established.

If possible, I would like to create a new service definition file from an existing service so that I do not have to go back manually and change the following parameters and capabilities:

Max # of Records Returned by Server
Lock Database
Max # of instances per machine

Any advice would be great.  Thanks
