I would really recommend opening a support case for this if this is a big issue. This sounds like something we would want to look at over a webex.
There are a lot of potential causes. Maybe somewhere in your network, there's a place where two circuits are connected accidentally. Maybe there's a problem with the geometric network. It's hard to say.
Running "Trace all Feeders" from ArcCatalog might help the situation. This process can take a long time, so you may want to do it during a time when users won't need access to the system.
If that doesn't help, definitely open a support case to get more formal help.
We have been deleting some empty field in various tables. It was evidently
one of these fields that caused the error. We have restored the database
to just before the field deletes and Feeder Manager is now working
Do you have a list of required fields for feeder manager? That would help
us head off this problem in the future.
Also...I tried to install 10.2.1a, but it would not install on ArcGIS
10.2.2 I would receive an error message that ArcFM 10.2.1a required
ArcGIS 10.2.1 and it would stop the install.
A lot of the configuration information can be found here:
ArcFM 10.2.1 and 10.2.1a should really only be used with ArcGIS 10.2.1. We are recommending that all utility companies stay on ArcGIS 10.2.1. Both ESRI and ArcFM are trying to reduce the number of upgrades that customers have to do, and we will be releasing patches or service packs for 10.2.1 instead of making you upgrade to an entirely new version.
See this for more info:
I will take a look at the configuration guide to see where we went wrong.
As to ArcGIS... We belong to a consortium of Government agencies, however
we are the only ones using ArcFM. This Consortium has an ESRI ELA and they
tend to stay near the forefront of the version list.
Upgrades are not the head ache that they use to be with ESRI.
Thanks again for your response.
