Below is the message from trying to create a empty raster mosaic. I can create point, poly, and table type layers.

Executing: CreateMosaicDataset "Database Connections\ogdbismarck43_EdnSDE.sde" test "GEOGCS['GCS_North_American_1927',DATUM['D_North_American_1927',SPHEROID['Clarke_1866',6378206.4,294.9786982]],PRIMEM['Greenwich',0.0],UNIT['Degree',0.0174532925199433]];-400 -400 1000000000;-100000 10000;-100000 10000;8.98305509728916E-09;0.001;0.001;IsHighPrecision" # #

any type of raster gives the same error. the connection is good and i can create other layers just not raster mosaics.

any suggestions or things to check would be great.
