Problem: Geoprocessing server is unable to find the data when executing AML

Description

An AML created in an ArcToolbox tool will not run successfully on a geoprocessing server. The server is unable to find the data.

Cause

AMLs created in ArcToolbox will not work on a geoprocessing server because the local paths contained in the AML are not converted to Universal Naming Convention (UNC) paths.

Solution or Workaround

Before submitting the AML to a geoprocessing server, use a text editor to change all local paths in the AML to UNC paths:

Local path:

Code:
d:\path\cov

UNC path:

Code:
\\machine_name\share_name\path\cov)
