Problem: Python script fails and returns the error, "000210: Cannot create output."


When executing a Python script, the following error is returned:

"000210: Cannot create output."


There are several causes for the problem:

• ArcGIS for Server is installed on the same machine, and the output path is specified to a personal geodatabase. Personal geodatabases are not supported in 64-bit processing and are not recognized by the server. This results in the script to default to a shapefile, which is not added to the personal geodatabase.

• Users do not have administrator permissions or write access on the machine where the data is being written, the data is locked, or the data is in an incorrect location. For more information, refer to the following web help, ArcGIS Help: 00210: Cannot create output.
