Master Data Services – Reorder Attributes “an unknown error occurred”

I came across this annoying error today whilst putting together some MDS entities. I was reordering the leaf member attributes of my entities when it threw the error “an unknown error occurred”. Yep, that tells me a lot. Reordering was working earlier in the day. The only things I had done was populate my entities with data and create some subscription views. I dropped the subscription view for my entity and hey presto reordering works again. So I added the subscription view and the reordering functionality breaks again. It turns out there is a bug in the Master Data Services 2012 which is fixed in SQL Server 2012 CU1.
