00396: The dataset version is later than is supported by your server. Minimum version: <value>

You are sharing a web layer and the server release version does not support publishing the dataset. The server must be the minimum version or later to support the dataset version.

Earlier client software releases cannot open datasets that participate in newer functionality. For example, an annotation dataset created or upgraded with ArcGIS Pro 3.x cannot be shared to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 or earlier. As another example, utility network version 6 cannot be shared to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 or earlier.

You may also encounter this error if you are publishing data containing a big integer, date only, time only, or timestamp offset field to ArcGIS Enterprise 11.1 or earlier.

The <value> parameter refers to the server version.


Do one of the following:

  • If a backup of the dataset was created before it was upgraded, add the backup dataset to the map and share it instead.
  • Share the web layer to a supported ArcGIS Enterprise version.
  • If you are publishing a query layer or text file with a date only, time only, big integer, or timestamp offset field, enable the Use field types that are compatible with ArcGIS Pro 3.1 and earlier releases when adding query layers and text files option found on the Map and Scene tab of the Options dialog box. Re-add the layer or file to the map; the field type will be the same as in earlier ArcGIS Pro releases.
  • If you encounter this error when sharing web layers with Python, set the useCompatibleFieldTypes property from the env class before adding data to a map. For a code sample, see FeatureSharingDraft.

Additional information

Geodatabases and client software are designed to work together. It is recommended that you keep these versions in sync when possible. For information on geodatabases, see Client and geodatabase compatibility.
