I'm modeling this ESRI tutorial for creating geoprocessing service with ArcGIS Server and I'm getting this error when trying to publish the service:
Service was published but cannot be started due to: Server object instance creation failed on all SOC machines. Server Object instance creation failed on machine MyServer. Cannot load tool: BufferAndClip: Geoprocessing service initialization failed.
I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10 against ArcGIS Server 9.3. My mxd that has the model in it has been saved out as version 9.3. Also my geodatabase is a 9.3 version. The model works fine within the mxd. The mxd and geodatabases and lyr files are located all in the same folder on the server (e.g. \\MyServer\ArcGIS Resources\Test\Test.mxd).
I have published map services before to this server with no issues, why I'm I getting this error?
