Troubleshooting: Why am I getting Unknown Errors or "ESRI Internal Error" in my QA/QC Tab?

Cause #1: Attribute Rules that refer to deleted fields

The metadata tables in the geodatabase are out of sync with the feature classes. There are at least two ways for your database to get into this state.

  1. The geodatabase tables were edited manually and incorrectly.
  2. The user deleted a field by right-clicking it in the ArcCatalog feature class Properties dialog. This was an Esri bug that was fixed in ArcGIS 8.1 SP2.

    Contact Esri for support.

    Cause #2: Relationship Rules that refer to deleted subtypes

    The metadata tables in the geodatabase are out of sync with the feature classes. There are at least two ways for the database to get into this state.

  3. The geodatabase tables were edited manually and incorrectly.
  4. The user deleted a subtype without first deleting relationship rules that refer to it.

    Contact Esri for support.

    Cause #3: Missing subtypes

    These errors may occur if the subtype field of a feature or related object is not valid. This occurs on a per-feature basis. In other words, some features in a feature class work correctly with validation, and some cause this error. The other causes listed above typically cause all features in the corrupt feature class to fail. To fix this, edit the offending feature or object to have a valid subtype value.

    Cause #4: Network Errors

    Network errors also sometimes cause this error message. It might help to remove the network elements on the feature (use Esri’s tool for this) and rebuild the network connectivity.

    As with cause #3, this reason occurs on a per-feature basis.
