I have published few map services in which I directly publish on server and for remaining services I have created service definition file.
All services are working fine but what exactly difference between "Publish a service" and "Save the service definition file" ? . In case "Publish a service " it also analyze the data and gives the warning message..
In case "Save the service definition file" we know the location of .sd file but in other case we do not.. so which one is best and why OR recommended ?
Software : ArcGIS Server 10.1 and Desktop 10.1
