This is a follow-up question to Overwrite existing map service in ArcGIS Server 10.1 (through ArcPy)
The issue arises when I try to overwrite a map service that has a cache already defined.
If I overwrite the service through ArcGIS Desktop the existing cache tile scheme is recognized and preserved through the overwrite. On the contrary, if I redeploy the service through Arcpy, that is create the .sddraft, transform it in .sd and upload it:
arcpy.mapping.CreateMapSDDraft(mapDoc, sddraft, service, 'ARCGIS_SERVER', con, True, None, summary, tags) arcpy.StageService_server(sddraft, sd) arcpy.UploadServiceDefinition_server(sd, con)
the existing tiling cache schema is not preserved and it's overwritten with the Bing standard cache tile scheme (I can see it in the generated .sddraft file).
Is there a way to preserve the existing schema?
