hi all -- in MDS 2012,  I am trying to move around members in Explorer (under different parents in an hierarchy) and get the following error, that does not seem to be very descriptive  -- does anyone have any background on it and how it can be mitigated?  

thx a big bunch,

Cos

Which is the exact version of SQL Server 2012. Did you applied on any SP or CU?

I am not able to repro on SQL Server 2014 which code is same as SQL Server 2012 with all the packs.
I created an entity with explicit hierarchy and derived hierarchy. I can drag the leaf from one node to the other. So I am wondering if it is something already fixed in the later SQL 2012 SP/CUs.

Hi, please make sure that you have the latest CU for Sql2012 and let us know if the issue still repros.

Thanks,

Sherry

the version we have is 11.0.5058  -- I believe SP2.
Any CU's after that that have MDS related critical issues?

thx

If you are trying to move members across hierarchy , do you mean by rearranging levels of hierarchy  ? if so thers is no way to shuffle levels of hierarchy wihout droping and  recreating it.  I beielve you also need to re map domain based attibutes with appropriate relations.
