The 10.0 geodatabase upgrade operation is not identifying certain invalid attribute domains and flagging them prior to the upgrade. Although a successful upgrade occurs, the user may experience crashes when trying to preview feature classes following the upgrade.
This is caused by coded value attribute domains containing coded values which are missing their corresponding descriptions. Creating coded value domains with this missing information was possible prior to the fix for NIM003107, which was included in ArcGIS 9.2 and ArcGIS 9.1 SP3.
