Does the output before the precondition affect the input of the next operation though? They are all separate feature classes, just a bunch of copy feature processes that have to be done pretty regularly and its just easier to use a model. If this works, I can actually combine two models into one.
Precondition connect is for order processes, first , second ,third ,,.etc.. the only affect of this connect that if the first processes before precondition connect failed, All processes after the connect willl not start and the model will stop.
Ok, I still have issues with locking and would like to just stop all services in order to clear locks but I can't seem to make a script a precondition.
My services lock my SDE so fast I can't run this long of a model but I think combining the models doesn't work. Some additional background: I am trying to copy features from a feature service layer into my SDE and it is such a headache. This is the only way the county will give me the parcel information. I'm trying to make this as simple as possible but building the model is proving very troublesome. I have issues somewhere everytime I run it.
