Mosaic Dataset: Geographic (datum) transformation is "missing" even though I set the transformation

I am trying to add .sids to a mosaic dataset. The .sids are in the below projection, which I specify when adding them to the mosaic dataset:

 

PROJCS["NAD_1983_StatePlane_Florida_North_FIPS_0903_Feet",

    GEOGCS["GCS_North_American_1983",

        DATUM["North_American_Datum_1983",

            SPHEROID["GRS_1980",6378137,298.257222101]],

        PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],

        UNIT["Degree",0.017453292519943295]],

    PROJECTION["Lambert_Conformal_Conic_2SP"],

    PARAMETER["False_Easting",1968500],

    PARAMETER["False_Northing",0],

    PARAMETER["Central_Meridian",-84.5],

    PARAMETER["Standard_Parallel_1",29.58333333333333],

    PARAMETER["Standard_Parallel_2",30.75],

    PARAMETER["Latitude_Of_Origin",29],

    UNIT["Foot_US",0.30480060960121924],

    AUTHORITY["EPSG","102660"]]

 

 

The mosaic dataset is in this projection:

 

PROJCS["NAD83(HARN) / Florida GDL Albers",

    GEOGCS["NAD83(HARN)",

        DATUM["NAD83_High_Accuracy_Reference_Network",

            SPHEROID["GRS 1980",6378137,298.257222101,

                AUTHORITY["EPSG","7019"]],

            TOWGS84[0,0,0,0,0,0,0],

            AUTHORITY["EPSG","6152"]],

        PRIMEM["Greenwich",0,

            AUTHORITY["EPSG","8901"]],

        UNIT["degree",0.0174532925199433,

            AUTHORITY["EPSG","9122"]],

        AUTHORITY["EPSG","4152"]],

    PROJECTION["Albers_Conic_Equal_Area"],

    PARAMETER["standard_parallel_1",24],

    PARAMETER["standard_parallel_2",31.5],

    PARAMETER["latitude_of_center",24],

    PARAMETER["longitude_of_center",-84],

    PARAMETER["false_easting",400000],

    PARAMETER["false_northing",0],

    UNIT["metre",1,

        AUTHORITY["EPSG","9001"]],

    AXIS["X",EAST],

    AXIS["Y",NORTH],

    AUTHORITY["EPSG","3087"]]

 

 

I'm using the geographic transformation NAD_1983_HARN_To_NAD_1983_2011, but I'm still getting the error 70116:

"Geographic (datum) transformation between the raster dataset and the mosaic dataset coordinate systems is missing."

 

Do I need to create a raster dataset and then add that to the mosaic dataset? I was under the impression that mosiac datasets would be able to handle rasters in different projections, but maybe that's only if the rasters are already in a raster dataset.

Any suggestions are welcome!

You need to: Set the datum transforms to be used as part of the mosaic dataset properties, defaults, catalog properties.

see Mosaic dataset properties—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop 

This defines the list prioritized datum transforms to be used when the system identifies differences between the datum of the source and the datum that the user is making the request in (which may be different to the datum of the mosaic dataset).  Note different projections may have different datums, but many projections may have use the same datum.

Hi Peter, 

Thank you for your suggestion. However, I think I've already done those things. I went back to double check and set the transformation again. 

First I went to the mosaic dataset in the catalog and right clicked > Properties > Defaults > Geographic Coordinate System Transformation: 

Then, I went to the Set Mosaic Dataset Properties tool > Catalog Items > Geographic Transformations, where it was already set but I removed it and applied it again. 

Finally, I analyzed the Mosaic Dataset, but still got the same error (70116) saying that the transformation is missing: 

Am I missing something?
