Do not use PNG8 as the tile format if you are caching a multiband image service. It is recommended to use other tile formats such as PNG24/ PNG32 /JPEG/Mixed.


Redefine the tile format that can support caching a multiband image service.

  • Right-click the message and click Show Advanced Cache Settings page.
  • Change the tile format from PNG8 to any of the other tile formats listed.

Once you address the issue, click the Analyze button on the Service Editor dialog box to reanalyze the service.
