Using either of ArcMap 10.5.1 and ArcGIS Pro 2.0.1 I am trying to keep a Mosaic Dataset updated with the contents of a folder of NetCDF files - where new NetCDF files are constantly being added -- but "Synchronize" doesn't seem to be doing what I expect as it fails to add new items:
arcpy.management.SynchronizeMosaicDataset(r"D:\OneDrive - NIWA\GISDATA\ArcGISPro_Projects\NetCDF_Synchronizing_CSM\NetCDFs.gdb\syncWithNoFilterNoDatafileExtension", r"Name LIKE '%nwpsfc\_2017%' ESCAPE '\'", "UPDATE_WITH_NEW_ITEMS", "SYNC_STALE", "UPDATE_CELL_SIZES", "UPDATE_BOUNDARY", "NO_OVERVIEWS", "NO_PYRAMIDS", "NO_STATISTICS", "NO_THUMBNAILS", "NO_ITEM_CACHE", "REBUILD_RASTER", "UPDATE_FIELDS", "CenterX;CenterY;Dimensions;GroupName;ProductName;Raster;Shape;StdTime;Tag;Variable;ZOrder", "UPDATE_EXISTING_ITEMS", "IGNORE_BROKEN_ITEMS", "OVERWRITE_EXISTING_ITEMS", "NO_REFRESH_INFO", "NO_STATISTICS")
Is it the fact that I'm dealing with NetCDF files in the synchronize process that makes it fail to update the Mosaic Dataset? Anyone else had this? Sounds like the above mentioned old thread is about the same or a similar issue - but from the description of the synchronize tool it can be used to "add new items" which is exactly what I need to do on a regular basis - but it fails. Using the manual "Add rasters" tool instead doesn't sound like a valid option? mosaicdataset netcdf synchronize
This is the output from one of my runs:

Thinking that it is the NetCDF file format which doesn't synchronize properly:
The next output is after adding some other (non-NetCDF based) rasters to the same Mosaic Dataset and running a synchronize with some more of those afterwards - as you can see the NetCDF sync fails with "Error: 8004205f: No new mosaic dataset item was added." but synchronizing the other rasters is successful.
