I published a GP tool to my server and it fails when I try and run it via Javascript API. The error is that it cannot find the input dataset - this is happening because the input workspace is a file GDB on a network share and the server does not have access to any network resources.

We've set up the data store (see screenshot) so that the network file GDB is duplicated locally, and I thought that the GP service would use the local workspace instead, but this clearly isn't happening.

I remote desktopped onto the server and found the location of the python script and saw that the workspace had been converted to a global variable, but was still pointing to the network GDB. Should this have been changed to the local GDB?

# Esri start of added variables

g_ESRI_variable_1 = u'\\\\getech\\store\\UTILITIES\\Globe_Data\\2015_08_04\\globe20150804-134955.gdb'

# Esri end of added variables

...

INWorkspace = g_ESRI_variable_1

OUTWorkspace = arcpy.env.scratchGDB

arcpy.env.workspace = INWorkspace

arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace = OUTWorkspace

etc

When I edit the script and change

g_ESRI_variable_1 = u'\\\\getech\\store\\UTILITIES\\Globe_Data\\2015_08_04\\globe20150804-134955.gdb'

to

g_ESRI_variable_1 = r'd:\data'

it runs ok when called with Javascript.

This is a known issue with server 10.2.1 - NIM098733. It's fixed at 10.3 and I don't think there are any plans to backport to 10.2, so I'll have to upgrade, or keep editing the script after publishing.
