I have a geoprocessing task on ArcGIS Server 10.1 that uses arcpy's Select By Location on a number of layers and writes a SQL file based on the results. For each iteration of the selection I'm passing a path to where the layer is located yet I'm getting this error:

ERROR 000732: Input Features: Dataset C:\arcgisserver\directories\arcgissystem\arcgisinput\RegQueryBuilder2\RegQueryBuilder.GPServer\extracted\v101\tigerdata\Zips\esriZipsLayer_NAD83.shp does not exist or is not supported

I'm wondering why the task is looking in this folder when I have hardcoded file paths (not env.workspace) in the script. I tried setting the workspace and scratch workspace environments in the initial execution of the script tool which was used for creating the geoprocessing package but I got the same error.

PS: I had worked around this error by copying the layers to that folder location but since the layers are very large it won't work for production.

Regarding the hard coded paths you originally tried, were those paths accessible by ArcGIS Server:  About registering your data with the server - ArcGIS Help 10.1

Joshua Bixby‌, in regards to this thread I gave rw permissions to the ArcGIS Server account on the machine hosting the files the script is accessing. After doing so I was able to register the input/output folders in Server Manager, however I'm still getting the same error as before. While I'm sure I did need to do these steps, I'm still not sure why it is looking in that folder for the data when I have provided a completely different path.
