SDE export to GDB not maintaining domain changes

Hi there,

We have a python script that automatically detects changed feature classes in our enterprise SDE, and exports them to a file GDB copy every night. Unfortunately changes to the SDE domain are not being propagated with the copied feature classes.

Any ideas why this might be happening?

The script copies the features using the arcpy.Copy_management function. The ESRI tool reference for this function states that it does maintain the domains, and it certainly took them with it the first time it copied the feature class. It seems like it just doesn't work on subsequent copying events.
