I have many layers that have joins to MYSQL tables.  I have all the ODBC connections set up in Arc Catalog, and in Arc Map everything works as it should.  When I go to publish the service it wants me to register the databases.  When I try to register it, it comes back with 'error:  general function failure'.  I have tried to register the database from manager, but when I import the connection file it just hangs until I close it.  Any help would be very appreciated.
