    ArcFM

     

    ArcFM is a powerful collection of tools for managing, modeling, and editing facility and landbase data in an enterprise system.

     

    NOTES

    • For an Oracle database connection in ArcGIS 10.2.1, use the tns name. For example, use orca.yankees rather than sde:oracle11g:orca.yankees. The longer format leads to inconsistent behavior with regard to login screens. If a stored display has been saved by someone who logged in using the longer format of the login string, connect with only the tns name and save the stored display again.
    • Simple-edge networks require the following configuration for simple edge features:
      • Assign the Feeder Cache Maintenance AU to the On Feature Split event for simple edge features. If there are multiple AUs, the Feeder Cache Maintenance AU should be the last AU assigned.
      • Set Split On Edit to yes for all junction features that connect to simple edges.
    • If you are unable to save stored items in a versioned geodatabase, ArcSDE's MAXBLOBSIZE and MAXBUFSIZE settings may be set too low. Schneider Electric recommends setting these values between 10MB and 20MB. Refer to the ArcFM Solution Online Help for more information on how to change these settings.

    Known Issues

     

    • ArcGIS - For Oracle clients using Stored Displays that contain joins, you must use direct connect if you want to be able to switch your stored display while already in an open session and have joined layers point to the proper version. TNS-style connections won't work in this case.
    • ArcGIS - In ArcFM note that labels from underlying features will show through a Map Inset placed on top of them (in terms of drawing order). (As per Esri bug BUG-000106546)
    • ArcGIS - The ArcFM Data Source Wizard can experience a memory leak when using SQL Server databases. (Esri Bug NIM080967)
    • ArcGIS - ArcFM Map Book Editor Preview crashes ArcMap when the Bing map from ArcGIS Online is in a stored display.
    • ArcGIS - Moving a WMS layer out of a group layer can lead to a crash when switching stored displays.
    • Conduit Manager - Cannot change alignment of cross section annotation. (MM54332)
    • Conduit Manager - Feeder Manager 2.0 fields cannot be configured to show in cross-section annotation.
    • Designer - Drag and drop of macro favorites to Design tree not working as expected (CLS-60237)
    • Feeder Manager 2 - FM2 joins appear to break annotation expressions. This is because annotation expressions are defined in ArcCatalog, where they are defined to reference a field as LABELTEXT. When you add FM2 joins (or any other join) to your map, the field is prepended with information to make it fully qualified, causing ArcCatalog to not recognize the field. A bug has been filed with Esri.
    • Feeder Manager 2 - There is a limitation for any plug-in workspace that is published to ArcGIS. This affects ArcFM Feeder Manager 2 joins. A hot-fix is planned to resolve this problem in ArcGIS for Server 10.4. (Esri BUG-000095875, Hotfix #HF-000003729)
    • File Geodatabase Compression - If you enable the "Compress File Geodatabase" option in Geodatabase Replication, the replica will fail. (Esri Bug)
    • Help - Our context sensitive help opens two tabs in a web browser. (Esri BUG-000096609)
    • Mobile - Using Mobile Sessions and Designs to edit data that causes changes in the Feeder Manager network is not supported. Feeder Manager 2.0 data does not update after replaying mobile sessions, resulting in incorrect Feeder Manager 2.0 data. Applications must be restarted for the changes to appear.
    • Underground Facilities Manager - Error on clicking the blank space in the list in ‘Disassociated Items’ tab in ‘Diagram Manager’. (MM55105)
