I have a standalone python script that runs on our ArcGIS 10.7.1 server nightly to regenerate a tile cache. The script runs fine when I use an admin server connection file, but when I switch to a publisher connection I am getting the error 000732:
Input Service: Dataset <path to server connection file>\<service name>.Mapserver does not exist or is not supported
Failed to execute (ManageMapServerCacheTiles).
However, the dataset does exist at the path specified on the server. The publisher connection file uses a user that is a publisher on the server. Connection file was created in ArcMap. When I regenerate the tiles in ArcMap using the same publisher connection all works fine.
Here is the script:
import arcpy from arcpy import env import os, sys, time, datetime, traceback, string # Set environment settings env.workspace = "C:/data" # List of input variables for map service properties connectionPath = r"<drive letter>:\Scripts\ManageMapServerCacheTiles" server = "<publisher connection file name>.ags" serviceName = r"<service name>.MapServer" database = "<sde connection file>.sde" featureClass = "<feature class name>" inputService = connectionPath + "\\" + server + "\\" + serviceName scales = [<list of scales>] numOfCachingServiceInstances = 3 updateMode = "RECREATE_ALL_TILES" areaOfInterest = "" waitForJobCompletion = "DO_NOT_WAIT" updateExtents = connectionPath + "\\" + database + "\\" + featureClass currentTime = datetime.datetime.now() arg1 = currentTime.strftime("%H-%M") file = connectionPath + "\\report_%s_<cache name>.txt" % arg1 # print results of the script to a report report = open(file,'w') try: starttime = time.clock() result = arcpy.ManageMapServerCacheTiles_server(inputService, scales, updateMode, numOfCachingServiceInstances, areaOfInterest, updateExtents, waitForJobCompletion) finishtime = time.clock() elapsedtime= finishtime - starttime #print messages to a file while result.status < 4: time.sleep(0.2) resultValue = result.getMessages() report.write ("completed " + str(resultValue)) print "Created cache tiles for given schema successfully for " +\ serviceName + " in " + str(elapsedtime) + " sec on " + arg2 except Exception, e: # If an error occurred, print line number and error message tb = sys.exc_info() report.write("Failed at step 1 \n" "Line %i" % tb.tb_lineno) report.write(e.message) report.close() print "Created Map server Cache Tiles "
The error occurs on line 36.
What would be the reason that the script will run with an admin connection but not a publisher connection, and using the same publisher connection in Desktop I can regenerate all tiles?
