We've set up the data store (see screenshot) so that the network file GDB is duplicated locally, and I thought that the GP service would use the local workspace instead, but this clearly isn't happening.
I remote desktopped onto the server and found the location of the python script and saw that the workspace had been converted to a global variable, but was still pointing to the network GDB. Should this have been changed to the local GDB?
# Esri start of added variables g_ESRI_variable_1 = u'\\\\getech\\store\\UTILITIES\\Globe_Data\\2015_08_04\\globe20150804-134955.gdb' # Esri end of added variables ... INWorkspace = g_ESRI_variable_1 OUTWorkspace = arcpy.env.scratchGDB arcpy.env.workspace = INWorkspace arcpy.env.scratchWorkspace = OUTWorkspace etc
When I edit the script and change
g_ESRI_variable_1 = u'\\\\getech\\store\\UTILITIES\\Globe_Data\\2015_08_04\\globe20150804-134955.gdb'
g_ESRI_variable_1 = r'd:\data'
