topology: add feature class and retain exceptions

Discussion created by SRoberts on Apr 11, 2011
We have a topology that includes Parcel, Zoning, and General Plan (GP)  feature classes.  The Zoning and GP "Area boundary must be covered by Boundary of" Parcel.  We included this rule such that when a parcel boundary is adjusted then the zoning and GP must move with it.  However, there are MANY exceptions to the rule which were painstakingly reviewed when the topology was created.
  Now we would like to add some additional feature classes to participate in the topology.  I tested this, and see that as soon as I add a new feature class, all the exceptions go out the window and we would need to start all over.  Is there any way to keep the marked exeptions?
