Curious if anyone else has run up against any issues with the copy function when running in a script and copying datasets (fc/fgdb) existing on a network?
Oddly enough, the process completes successfully (data is fully copied ) however a 260 error mssg is produced consistently so the script cannot continue.
Found evidence of 'iffy-ness' of copy function over a network here.
Word back from ESRI tech support:
I've been working with Redlands on this issue.
They confirmed that this is a new bug.
[BUG-000082022 - When using copy in the data management toolbox and copying to a UNC path, the copy says it fails in the tools messages but the tool is actually successful.] At the moment, there's no workaround.
