I've searched many threads for an answer to this question, but haven't had a lot of luck. In a nutshell what I am trying to do is have a geoprocessing service run on the ArcGIS Server, but access a network file geodatabase location, retrieve data, manipulate data, and write back to that file geodatabase. I have the gdb registered with the service so I have no problem accessing or manipulating the data. However, I am running into issues writing back to the file geodatabase. I can however, write a shapefile back to the folder containing the file geodatabase with no issue.
I've just been trying to test this with some very simple code that I will attach below. The first example is writing to the folder as a shapefile which works just fine. The second example is basically the same except I am trying to write to a file geodatabase. In the 2nd example my code will not delete the feature class when it is present. That is where it fails. If I manually delete it before I run the service, my code will fail on the copy features. (Note I am testing for the presence of the shapefile or FC and deleting it as arcpy.env.overwriteOutput does not work in Pro 2.5.) I would very much appreciate any help or suggestions!
