After setting up ArcToolbox to process jobs on a remote Geoprocessing Server, certain tools still process locally.
Conversion tools for a geodatabase, an RDBMS, and ArcView will only execute locally. They cannot send jobs to a Geoprocessing Server.
These tools use ArcObjects and executable (exe) files that do not support remote execution.
Run ArcToolbox on the Geoprocessing Server and execute the tools there.
