Getting a 99999 error using Zonal Stats, help troubleshoot?

I'm having problems using the zonal statistics tool under spatial analyst, my attempts have all led to errors.


I have 1800 points with 500m buffers and 50m buffers. I have raster files for elevation(DEM) and the derived slope, aspect, TPI, and VRM curvature. My end goal is to have average values for each of the before mentioned attributes for both of the buffer sizes, for each point. I'm not sure exactly what format the output is, but I will be running statistical analysis, so I will need some sort of table eventually.


Just running the tool using the buffer file as the feature zone data and the DEM as the input value raster gives me a 99999 error, I've made sure things like spaces and beginning numbers are not causing the problems. I've also tried doing individual buffers and small clusters to make sure that overlapping buffers aren't causing problems, but I'm getting the same results.


Sorry this isn't a whole lot to go off of, but I'm new to this tool and I haven't been able to find anything useful in my hours of searching online. Any ideas for things I can try?
