I am new to ArcGIS for Maritime: Bathymetry and was just trying to learn how to work with the extension, but already failed adding bathymetry data to a BIS. The error message I get is the following:

"Unable to generate a new Bathymetry Data Index". Unfortunately, it does not say why.

The .bag files I used were exported from CARIS and/or downloaded from NOAA, which, I believe, were also exported from CARIS.
Does anybody have any advice what I have to change or look for?
