Network Dataset Update procedures

Discussion created by jtmac on Aug 11, 2011
We are currently updating our centerline street data\network dataset in a departmental SDE Geodatabase.  Once an update happens, we then need to copy this data to our Enterprise Geodatabase for all user to consume.  The process we use to accomplish this is a Python script which truncates the enterprise data, and then copies the departmental data into it, but we are running into problems by having to disconnect users in order to rebuild the network on the enterprise.

Our current environment is 9.3.1, but we will eventually be moving to 10.1 (skipping 10).

Are there any recommended workflows, or updates coming at 10.1 (ie GDB admin for dealing w/Schema locking) that anyone could share?
