I'm trying to publish a map service containing a large .tif raster (48GB).
I managed to publish a small cached raster successfully (for testing), but when I tried to publish the large one, the cache generation got stuck at 0% even though it kept saying it's in progress, and again at 24%. Now I can't even publish the small one because the application is not responding right after I select "Publish".
It's an ArcGIS Server Enterprise 10.1 on a Windows Server 2008 OS machine.
- the machine is on a Microsoft Azzure cloud.
- the machine has 4 CPU cores (so I set the number of instances to 5).
- it's a raster TIF file with LZW compression.
- I chose 5 scales, and tried different formats for the tiles.
Thanks for your help
