000983: The specified number of points could not be created in all cases due to restrictions from the minimum allowed distance.


This error occurs when the feature cannot contain the specified number of points while also maintaining the minimum allowed distance between points. When the constraining feature class is a polygon, or when using a constraining rectangle, the tool will not always try to place the maximum number of points, as this would greatly slow processing speed.


Try reducing the number of points, the minimum allowed distance, or a combination of the two.
