Hello Keith,


I'm not sure about python, but tasks 1 and 2 can be performed with a little
shell scripting on a unix environment. Just hit the http webmanager for
ArcGIS Server with the appropriate post or get parameters.

Hey Shruggers,


Anybody out there know if it is possible to use a Python script on the GIS
server to:


1)      Start, Stop and/or Restart Map Services

2)      Change the Map Document of a Map Service

3)      Change the Data Sources of layers in a map document


I haven't had much luck finding documentation on this.
