00037: Basemap layers cannot be published directly to an optimized map service

Your data frame contains a basemap layer. Basemap layers contain layers or map services meant to be used as a background or reference point for other layers in your map. Generally, these layers should be published as separate map services and mashed up with your operational layers in a Web map.
