Create Replica python script gives error 00582

I am trying to schedule a python script to synchronize changes.  I created a model first with one command in it -- the create replica tool from ArcToolbox.  I exported the model to a python script and made a few changes.  One fix was to change "arceditor" to "arcinfo" because we don't have arceditor.

When I try to run the python script at the command prompt, I get the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Temp\", line 28, in module

    raise e
arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 000582: Error occurred during execution.
Failed to execute (CreateReplica).[/CODE

I looked up the error 00582 and it said to look at the values of the parameters because the tool first does a check on the input parameters.

But it doesn't tell me which parameter value to fix. But hold on, didn't I export the script directly from a model?  You would think the code would work "as-is", but no.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this or work around it?
