Can anyone give me direction as to possible reasons why when publishing certain map services I get the "Packaging Succeeded but Publishing Failed" error? When I expand the Geoprocessing Results window the failure is when trying to Upload/Publish the Service Definition file. If I try to rerun the process from the .SD file I get an error message telling me that my .SD is not supported or doesn't exist; when I follow the path to the folder location my .SD is actually a .SDDRAFT. If I change the file extension to .SD the process will run but it just fails like it did originally.

The frustrating part is that I have no problems publishing some things. For example, a map service with only vector data publishes with no concerns, an image service with LiDAR in a GDB publishes without an issue, JPG rasters publish without issue how ever TIFF rasters are failing, any form of aerial imagery in a GDB is failing, TIFFs in a GDB are failing. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it as the same dataset will publish for one project but fail for another.

Thank you

  • Are you copying data to the server, and if so, what is the size of the output definition? Ive seen issues where a network component between the publisher and the ArcGIS Server instance will limit the incoming service definition based upon filesize or time taken to upload. – Simon Sep 13 '13 at 3:47
  • you can try to register data store when publish service. this may because the service pack can't acquire the data the pack needs. – Suwen Sep 18 '13 at 1:15
