For ArcGIS 10.3.1 with new 10.3.1 file geodatabase raster mosaics we randomly produce an 80042019 error when building overviews (which fail to build). In some circumstances the participating rasters in the mosaics are removed after the build overview fails. We approached Esri Inc technical support in USA but they were unable to replicate the issues.
Trolling technical forums has furnished me with a very small check list. All of which we have accounted for in testing, including:
- Path file names length do not exceed 256 characters
- File names do not break windows naming conventions
- Raster's are visible in the mosaic and exist (double checked via repair)
- There's no permission issues
The issue has been observed on a raster mosaics with only two rasters (one built, the other did not), and on raster mosaics with many rasters (15 odd raster's 36 did not build).
The rasters are added to mosaics on an ad hoc basis by different users. I suspect this the underlying reason, and it's probably to do with the mosaics properties conflicting with loaded rasters. My next tests will concentrate on rebuilding raster statistics and then mosaic histogram before the build overviews. But I'm flying blind. Has anyone see this issue before?
