AML ERROR - Unable to run file

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

After submitting a "Run Geoprocessing AML" request to a remote processing server the "Remote Processing" dialogue shows it's completed even though there are no changes to the data. The results in ArcToolbox display the following error:
AML ERROR - Unable to run file

line 3 of file /kawau2/temp/arcexe80/gpserver/amls/request9.aml
AML MESSAGE - Stopping execution of AML file due to ERROR condition
---and request9.aml on the UNIX server looks like this:---
&codepage ANSI
Precision Single Highest
&RUN \\tashi\hippo1\jneild\sample.aml


1. The Geoprocessing Server was unable to find the AML as the drive /hippo1 was not mounted on the server.

2. The drive share name on Windows NT is different to the UNIX drive name as
mounted on the UNIX server.
NT recognizes \\HIPPO\HIPPPODRIVE rather than \\hippo\hippo1.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Mount the disk with the AML to the UNIX server.
  2. Ensure the NT share name and the UNIX disk name are the same.
