Custom Python tool Execution failure

I've written couple of Python scripts that make operations to featurelayers and a table. Mostly some CRUD-operations based on the input of tools. Tools work well when they are executed from command line or in ArcMap. However, when published as a Geoprocessing service in ArcGIS server, they all fail to execute. According to ArcGIS server log, the problem is on creating Cursor objects:

 Executing (InsertRow): InsertRow 1 1 aaa # 2 1.1.2001 1.1.2001 # # # # A # # 0 # # # # 1.1.2001 1.1.2001 1.1.2001 0 0 0 # 0 Start Time: Tue Sep 11 14:09:26 2012 Running script InsertRow... : "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.ARCGIS\Application Data\ESRI\Desktop10.0\ArcCatalog\arcdata02.sde\sde.SDE.mobile\sde.SDE.task2" does not exist Failed to execute (InsertRow). Failed at Tue Sep 11 14:09:26 2012 (Elapsed Time: 0,00 seconds)


I've tried to with different forms of the connection string (absolute path to sde file, Path starting with "Database connection/<dataset name>/<feature class>), but none of these works.

Any ideas to make the script work? I'm running ArcGIS server version 10.0.

ArcServer editing requires at least a ArcServer Standard license I believe.

If you have that, it looks like your SDE connection file is referenced to the local profile. I would imagine that isn't how you want to set it up on your server.

The licence is ArcGIS Server Enterprise so that shouldn't be the problem.

Do you mean that the SDE file itself shouldn't be under local profile? I copied the file to the same directory where the Python files are, changed the script to use that file and tried again but came out with the same error.

arcpy.env.workspace = "arcdata02.sde"

updateCur = arcpy.UpdateCursor("sde.SDE.mobile\\sde.SDE.task", sql)
insertCur = arcpy.InsertCursor("sde.SDE.history\\sde.SDE.task_history")


I'm wondering why do the tools work when run from ArcCatalog, but not any more as published GPService.

ArcGIS Server Enterprise doesn't tell you your license level, just the number of licenses and servers you can deploy to.

Also make sure you use UNC paths when executing scripts on a server. You are getting a "does not exist Failed to execute" error, so it seems it can't find your data more than a license level problem.
