Publishing TPK as Tile Cached Service [10.2]

Discussion created by aaronnoriega on May 21, 2014
I have a Tile Package that I want to publish as a Tiled Map Service. This data is static and will never need to be updated.

I put the TPK into an MXD, Share As -> Service. Service caching scheme is imported from the TPK schema file and tiles are set to manually update.  The exploded TPK gets copied to the server when published. I 'Import Map Server Cache' from the TPK. This all works perfectly.

However, now I have two sets of the exploded TPK, one in the arcgisinput folder and another in the arcgiscache folder.

Is there anyway to allow this service to work while only keeping one exploded set of the TPK?
