comment Unable to rename file geodatabase in ArcGIS running in a VM
@Mapperz I'm on Windows 7. The only reason I changed from VirtualBox to VMWare is because the rest of the team is using VMWare. I'm the only GIS dev though, so my problems are a bit different to theirs.

comment Unable to rename file geodatabase in ArcGIS running in a VM
@nickves Yes, the data (file gdbs, shapefiles etc) are stored on the host, accessed through the vm via a mapped drive (not VMWare Shared Folders). I know I used the term "locked" but because of what I said next (restarting the VM does not help, and I cannot rename any file gdbs at all, even old ones), this leads me to believe that it is not a locking issue.

comment arcpy.da.Walk not adhering to datatype filter “Locator”
@GISGe I think that may have been the problem. I was given a gdb created in 10.1. Now that I created a gdb in 10.3 and created a locator in it, the filter is now working correctly.

comment How do you use Windows folders as acrpy Parameters
To overcome any ArcGIS debauchery with folders, I always use os.path.join. Always. Raw string if needed.

comment arcpy.da.Walk not adhering to datatype filter “Locator”
@ChrisR I assumed not adding any parameters would return everything by default. Either way, using the Any still only returned the feature classes, and not the locators.

@GISGe I'm on 10.3. I remember trying this in 10.2 as well, and it didn't work then either.

comment How do I generate a distance table using 2 different point files and a line file?
This may not be what you want to hear, but this does indeed sound like a Network Analysis problem, specifically a Closest Facility Analysis problem. You would of course then need to build a network dataset and go through all those steps. Otherwise you could do it in Python. The network analysis method might be worth it if you are using your street dataset for other analysis as well.

comment Label point according to cartographic representation position instead of geometry
I'm actually looking to link the purple labels (currently attached to the physical locations of the purple features) with the placement of the black cartographic representations of the purple features.

comment Using Update Cursor?
Are you running this in the Python window in ArcMap? You don't perhaps have one row selected in the feature class you are trying to update?
