After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
Using a Database Connection provides the ability for overwriting the output. In a future release, the tool will provide a better indication that the tool does not run successfully in this scenario.
Use a database connection instead of a database server connection. 1. Right-click the enterprise geodatabase in the Catalog tree > Save Connection. 2. Use the database connection as the output location of the Feature Class To Feature Class tool.
