ArcGIS GP service failing - Bad syntax in request

My geoprocessing service is failing with the errors:

 

ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function.
An event was unable to invoke any of the subscribers [Execute error]
Bad syntax in request. (status code 400).

 

And here's the script that is being called. p0 is the derived output raster and p1 is the input raster.

 

def function(p0, p1):

    import arcpy
    import os
    from arcpy.sa import *

 

    scratchFolder = arcpy.env.scratchFolder
    arcpy.AddMessage('arcpy.env.scratchFolder: ' + arcpy.env.scratchFolder)
    arcpy.AddMessage(str(p1))

    output = os.path.join(scratchFolder, "output.tif")
    arcpy.AddMessage(output)
    Fill(p1).save(output)

 

    arcpy.SetParameter(0, output)

    return

 

I'm running ArcGIS Server 10.6 on Windows Server 2016 and the geoprocessing service was published from ArcGIS Desktop 10.6 on my PC running Windows 7. The server does not have ArcGIS desktop installed on it and never did.

 

Initially I thought it was a Spatial Analyst licencing problem but if I swap the offending Fill(p1).save(output) line with Negate(p1).save(output), with Negate being another SA tool, then it works fine and so the licence is ok. FlowDirection also fails in the same way as Fill.

 

The tool runs fine on ArcGIS Desktop on my PC. This is a simplified version of my tool to illustrate the error more clearly.

 

Here's the complete output messages from the script in case that helps:
