Tools will not send jobs to the Geoprocessing Server

Last Published: April 25, 2020


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.

Solution or Workaround

Run ArcToolbox on the Geoprocessing Server and execute the tools there.
