Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2012 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2012 fix release.
Consider the following scenario:
You have a recursive-derived hierarchy that has one or more non-recursive levels under the recursive relationship in SQL Server 2012 Master Data Services.
You create a subscription view against the recursive-derived hierarchy.
In this scenario, the view creation behavior fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
An error occurred while saving the subscription view
