I need to create a geometric network in my network dataset which resides within my file geodatabase. I have been receiving the following error: Cannot create geometric network. The selected feature dataset does not contain any feature classes which can participate in a new geometric network.

This error should not come up because there are tons of functional feature classes in the network data set.

Any workarounds or solutions?

    Are you sure you are creating a geometric network with a network dataset? Did you mean feature dataset? – Alex Tereshenkov Oct 31 '13 at 7:59

Create a new Feature Dataset in your database. copy the Feature Classes you want to use to this Feature Dataset Right klick on the newly created Feature Dataset and select /new/Geometric Network.

And read the ESRI article http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/in_ArcCatalog/002r00000009000000/

    I think you should check your terminology with respect to features, feature classes and feature datasets. – PolyGeo Oct 9 '15 at 9:53
