So, about a month ago I started having problems with a python script that I had been running for about a year. The script runs a model that exports sde data to a file gdb that no one else can get to, so there aren't any locks! Everything runs fine until I get to the first dataset that has a geometric network. Now, this dataset has always had a geometric network; so, I don't think this is the issue. I really miss this script running at night!
A new twist: this dataset has attachments that are recently new via the ATTACH table. Of course, once I began using the ATTACH tables for feature classes the sde grew -- almost doubled in size since I first started doing this.
I can manually drag and drop the dataset into the gdb, But this dataset takes a while especially with the specific feature that has the attachments in the ATTACH table. Once that feature is finished; everything else whizzes by!
I honestly don't know why it started getting this message! I've read the posts dealing with the Error 000260 and none of them seem to fit my issue. I found a couple solutions through a Google search but it always scares me when they say I have to download some ... fix!
Any thoughts/suggestions/recommendations are welcome.
