Solution - Fiber Manager - Unable to Split Fiber Cable When Broken Layers are in Map

Version 6

    Behavior

     

    When attempting to split a Fiberopticcable feature with a splice or transition point, an error similar to the following is recorded in the Miner Event Viewer log.


    '2010-12-03 14:45:01,308 [4832] ERROR Miner.Framework.FiberManager.SheathSplit [(null)] - Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    Stack trace:    at Miner.Framework.FiberManager.SheathSplit.IsFeatureAboutToBeSplitCurrentlySelected(IFeature featureToSplit)
       at Miner.Framework.FiberManager.SheathSplit.SplitSheathUsingPoint(IFeature pointFeature)
    {log4net:HostName=testmachine, LoggingAssemblyFileVersion=9.31.1.5881}'


    The fiber cable is never split, and the splice or transition point is never placed.

     

    Cause

     

    This problem may be related to the following bug fixed in ArcFM 10.0.1.

    MM41803:  Fiber Manager -- Inability to digitize Riser

    The problem is related to broken data links in the current MXD or stored display.

     

    Workaround
