Using ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.1. I have a set of about 600 points that I’m using as the flag input on the trace geometric network tool. Every time I ran the tool with these points, it crashes, along with ArcMap or ArcCatalog, whichever its being run from. I began isolating the points/flags and found that it was crashing only on certain points. Since the crash doesn’t provide any information on the cause, I have no way of knowing what’s causing it or whats different about these points that's causing it to crash. Has anyone experienced an issue like this? The crash occurs on any trace task type.
The points are in NAD83 State Plane and stored in a file gdb. I have been able to isolate a few points that cause the crash and yes, when I run it on one of those points, it crashes. It works fine on the rest of the points. I have not been able to figure out the difference between the points that cause the crash and the ones that don't. The issue occurs on the trace tool in modelbuilder. When I run the trace tool outside of modelbuilder, I experience similar results where the good point(s) run fine, however, the bad point(s) generate error 999999 "Invalid network element id". I have not found any google information on this. All the "invalid network element id" search results refer to reconciling data, which I'm not doing.
