I have successfully changed the data sources for the map documents (.mxd) files, but find that when I open the mxd it puts a lock on both the old and new file GDB. I can't find anything in the updated mxd that references the old file GDB but there must be something left.
CurFldr = r'\\Gis Server Data\Replicas\test' + '\\'
OldGDB = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)
NewGDB = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)
mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r'\\Gis Server Data\Replicas\test\test.mxd')
mxd.findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths(CurFldr + OldGDB, CurFldr + NewGDB)
mxd.saveACopy(r'\\Gis Server Data\Replicas\test\Copy_of_test.mxd')
I have also tried mxd.replaceWorkspaces & mxd.save()
Using the buildt-in set datasource tool seems to work fine on the same mxd files.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
