Solution - Fiber Manager - The Feature Could Not Be Split

Version 5

    Behavior

     

    The following error message is received when attempting to use the Esri Split Tool to split a fiber cable.

    (Split
    The feature could not be split.)

     

    Cause

     

    Fiber Manager is currently designed so that only objects assigned the FIBEROBJECT model name can split linear fiber features. This is enforced when the ArcFM Validate Fiber Sheath Split autoupdater is assigned to a linear feature. Removing the autoupdater results in data corruption.

    The only approved way to split edges belonging to your fiber network is to place a point feature whose feature class is assigned the ArcFM Fiber Optic Cable Splitter autoupdater on an edge feature whose feature class is assigned the ArcFM Validate Fiber Sheath Split autoupdater.

    Under no circumstances should you use any Esri split tools, especially Split Into Equal Parts, to split edges belonging to your fiber network. Corruption of your data results from the use of such tools.

     

    Solution

     

    Do not use Esri split tools to split edge features belonging to your Fiber network. Assign the proper autoupdaters to feature classes as described above.
