Geometric Network Feature Class and external DB connection and FC update

Discussion created by gisrulz on Jan 28, 2014
Is it possible to have a feature class that participates in a geometric network, that you can wipe clean and rebuild nightly based upon the data in an external database.  For example, if an external asset management system has information on a particular feature such as a tank, can the network feature be updated nightly with the external DB attriubutes and/or location information without impacting the fc or the network it belongs to?
