Hello, I am working on a versioned SDE which will get reconciled to the default SDE hosted in a different office location. Currently, there are a lot of topological errors that I will need to fix such as snapping nodes to lines so I will need to have the validation inspector to edit. When I tried to create new topology for feature dataset, it said “ the selected feature dataset doesn’t contain any feature class which can participant in a topology”. I am not sure what could cause that as there are various points, lines and polygons under the feature dataset. Also, I can't unregister as versioned as I am not the data owner. Can anyone here suggest what I could look into?
The error is a bit misleading: Error: Cannot create topology
You cannot create a new Topology in a Versioned Feature Dataset. You need to Unregister as Versioned, to create the Topology.
However, before you register data, consider that there are certain ArcGIS operations you can't perform on data that is registered as versioned. These operations are as follows:
- Create a topology.
- Create a geometric network.
- Add or remove a feature class from a geometric network.
- Create a network dataset.
- Add or remove a feature class from a network dataset or make other schema changes.
