In this Document
 The application is working as designed.  Code was added in 6.0.15.b117 + to restrict the embedding of OPTICAL/TDM template types to other template types. 
 MetaSolv Solution does not allow the embedding of Optical networks into non-Optical network types. Optical uses the Optical Provisioning Assistant for assignment while Ethernet uses graphical/schematic design.  These design methodologies are incompatible.
 The basic limitation was documented in Online Help (see screenshot below)
