comment So I am a programmer. What do I do to become a mapper?
Sounds like you need to sell yourself a little more and review your resume. I got hired into GIS out of a Computer Information Systems program and got paid to learn GIS on the job. I did an intro to GIS in my Resource Management program and that is all the GIS i had under my belt. Perhaps take an ESRI course on cartography and add it to your resume? There are lots of free online webinars with ESRI. Google Maps community has many free webinars as well. Download an open source software and learn it so you can add it to your resume. Sell yourself is the best advice i can give.

I'll test on our 10.1 server when time permits. It's only a test server right now and not launched for our entire GIS community. ESRI may have fixed these problem with the new version. Thanks for your help.

I'm still getting the error in ArcCatalog which I'll report back on when I figure it out. Sounds like a Python problem from what i've read so far.

Are you using ArcGIS 10.0 or ArcGIS 10.1?

Thanks for the tip with the paths. However the tip regarding the importToolbox method is not the problem as I always create an alias for my toolbox. It appears that the ImportToolbox method is plagued with bugs. There are many listed on the ESRI support site. It's crazy considering we had to find a work around for the Boundary Must Be Covered by Boundary of (Area-Area) rule which did not work with the AddRuleToTopology method and now they fixed that problem in 10.0 and a new problem is the ImportToolbox method doesn't work. Looking for workaround...stay tuned

Well it appears that we do indeed have ArcGIS 10 SP5 on our servers which eliminates the need to use the work around that was created to avoid the bug pre-SP5. I tested this to confirm and the script ran without error and will undoubtedly run on our new 10.1 servers as well. Cheers!

Apparently this should not be a problem in ArcGIS 10.1 or 10.0 with SP5. I'm waiting to hear from our IT department which SP we have installed on our servers which may eliminate the use of our former work around. I'll post as soon as I get info and test.
