ArcGIS Server: export PNG file with bing map basemap

Hi All,

I have a problem with exporting PNG file through running a published GP service. I made a simple tool to export a png file from MXD with python. When I run my script on ArcMap Desktop, I can get a png file stored in a specific folder. However, after publishing as a GP service and running it, the png file has no Bingmap basemap with it. Could anyone help on this?
I knew that for ArcGIS Desktop, we can install a patch to active bing map with Bing maps key. But I have no idea to active the Bing maps key for ArcGIS Server. We are using 10.1 version now.
Besides, I realize that our Bing Maps Extension is expired. Is it being used on ArcGIS Server 10.1 still?
import arcpy,datetime
arcpy.env.overWriteOutput = 1

mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"F:\ArcGISData\bingmap.mxd")

filepath = r"F:\ArcGISData"
pngName = "\BINGMAP.png"

outputfile = filepath+pngName
