Publishing Tool from the Server Tools set

Discussion created by AngelynDavis on Apr 25, 2014
I have an existing service and service definition file that I need to update based on changes to resources that our field crews input daily, but I cannot figure out a way to automate this process using the Server tools toolbox.

Has anyone successfully overwritten an existing service through a model or python script?

I am trying to use the Upload SD tool.
[INDENT][/INDENT]Under service definition, I navigated to the SD file I created.
[INDENT][/INDENT]Pointed it to the correct server.
[INDENT][/INDENT]Then, under Override Service Properties (I am assuming this is where you can override an existing service), I told it the service name to override, set the folder type to existing, etc.

When I run the tool, however, I get an error message saying that the service already exists.
