I am unable to get an Illustrator file with links to convert to PDF. Any pointers would be much appreciated!

If the links cannot be found and "Fail jobs with unavailable images" is set to Yes, I would say that is normal. Illustrator links to images using relative paths and as the file in Switch is not in the same location as the original the paths to the images cannot be resolved correctly. If the images are for example on a network location and the link to the image contains a complete path, then that is different. However, a more robust method is to create a package so everything is together (File - Package).
