Step 1: Prepare Database and Create Domains

1. Prepare your database

Right-click your database in ArcCatalog and run both of the following tools:

  •  Upgrade ArcFM Solution Database

  •  Create/Upgrade ArcFM System Tables

2. Create domains

Apply the following domain properties to each domain listed below.

  • Field Type: Long Integer
  • Domain Type: Coded Values
  • Split policy: Duplicate
  • Merge policy: Default Value

FdrMgrNonTraceable

If you plan to create a FdrMgrNonTraceable field on one or more of your edge feature classes, create a domain to be applied to fields carrying the FDRMGRNONTRACEABLE field model name (assigned in a future step).

Transformer Unit kVA

The ArcFM Electric Trace Options includes an option to display kVA by phase for a trace. To access this option in ArcMap, click the Options button on the ArcFM Electric Traces toolbar and select the Electric Traces tab:

With this option checked, the Rated kVA dialog is shown after each trace. This displays the sum of the Rated kVA (by phase) for all transformer units returned by the trace. If transformer units are not present, the rated kVA is calculated from the kVA values of the transformers. If it's not configured, or configured incorrectly, it displays values of 0.0.

To display Rated kVA for a trace, you must create the following domain. This domain holds the possible Rated kVA values in your network. The following table shows an example of how you might create this domain. Your domain will probably have more values.

3. Create model name domains

If they do not already exist, create and populate the domains that contain the electric field and object class model names. Apply the following domain properties to each domain listed below.

Field Type: Text

Domain Type: Coded Values

Split policy: Default Value

Merge policy: Default Value
