001986: Geodatabase System Tables not found.

Description

Solution

Ensure that your input workspace has geodatabase functionality enabled. To enable the geodatabase and add the geodatabase system tables, you can run the Enable Enterprise Geodatabase tool.

This error may also result if your geodatabase is an older version. You can use the Upgrade Geodatabase tool to ensure your geodatabase functionality is current.
