What's new in the Server toolbox
A number of changes were made to the Server toolbox at 10.1, including a new toolset for publishing GIS services and a toolset for exporting web maps for printing.
- Publishing toolset: This new toolset contains tools to stage and publish GIS services.
- Printing toolset: This new toolset contains a tool that allows you to print the current state of a web map.
Manages internal data kept by the server about the built tiles in a map or image service cache.
This tool takes the state of a web application (for example, included services, layer visibility settings, and client-side graphics) and returns a printable page layout or basic map of the specified area of interest.
Allows you to sign in to portals. If you are publishing to an ArcGIS Online portal you need to be signed in to ArcGIS Online in order to publish. For those organizations that would like to use ArcGIS Online behind the firewall or in their own private cloud, there is a version that you can install and use on your own computer networks. It is called Portal for ArcGIS.

Stages a service definition. A staged service definition (.sd) file contains all the necessary information needed to publish a GIS service, including data that must be copied to the server because it does not appear in the server's data store.
Uploads and publishes a GIS service to a specified GIS server based on a staged service definition (.sd) file.
Various tools in the Caching toolset have been updated to support ArcGIS Online caching and the new ArcGIS for Server user experience for caching at 10.1. Some of these changes affect parameter order, naming, and keywords. If you use Python scripts for caching, they may require migration and should be carefully checked against the 10.1 documentation and sample scripts.
