Appending to a layer with attachments in an unversioned sde database

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I’m trying to use a Python script to append to a layer with attachments to an unversioned sde.  I originally got errors saying that had to be during an edit session.  So I added this code to start an edit session.


edit = arcpy.da.Editor(workspace)
edit.startEditing(False, False)
arcpy.Append_management(srcData, destDataSDE, "NO_TEST")


But now I’m getting contradictory errors on the same attempt to run the script.


Objects in this class cannot be updated outside an edit session [<feature class>]
This operation is not allowed while editing [sde.DEFAULT]


It "cannot be updated outside an edit session" and the "operation is not allowed while editing"?  I don’t understand.


If anyone has any ideas of what I might be doing wrong, I would appreciate it.
