In ArcGIS Pro 2.5, I created a Utility Network with 2 Domain Networks in an SDE GeoDatabase. When I try to copy the feature dataset containing the UN to a File GDB, it fails (around 3%) with the following error:
Does a UN require data before it can be moved? It would be nice to be able to copy a blank UN to a FGDB for testing.
I export the asset package, then I have to import the asset package to the File GeoDatabase? This requires me to have a functioning Utility Network in the File GeoDatabase first.
This is not what I want - I want an empty File GeoDatabase, with the ability to copy/paste everything that I have from an Enterprise GDB, including the utility network.
This is a simple function with the Geometric Network, and it just looks like a bug in ArcGIS Pro 2.5.
Exporting and importing an asset package is the current way to move utility networks from one geodatabase to another.
We are working on copy/paste capabilities, but do not expect them to be available for another release or two.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
