    Known Issues


    • Mobile - Set Server OID can fail when running on a PGDB in ArcCatalog. As an alternative, use the command line version of the Set Server OID tool. More information is available in the ArcFM Desktop Configuration guide. (MM51742)
    • Geodatabase Replication - Update XML is generated with points before lines, resulting in missing points. (MM48383)
    • Compress Geodatabase - We don't support setting the parameter 'Compress File Geodatabase' in General Settings.  This is off by default.  Note that it calls an Esri tool that often fails, and it also doesn't help with bandwidth, so there is no important reason to support it.  This configuration hasn't been supported since at least 10.1, but it has only now recently been added to the Read Me.  (CLS-58761 - closed bug with this same information)
    • Help - Our context sensitive help opens two tabs in a web browser. (Esri BUG-000096609)
