Something very strange happen in my FME shutdown python script that uses arcpy.Exists() function. This function test if a feature class exists or not and returns True or False.

 

The following script returns False in FME even if the feature class do exists. I have tryed the same script in a python shell using the same python interpretor, and it returns True.

 

Any ideas why it fails in FME shutdown python?

 

  1. import arcpy
  2. print arcpy.Exists("\\\\cnatrtd8\\geo\\GEODEV011.sde\\GEO09_WEB_MERCATOR\\GEO09E03_CS_STA")
