    When you created your service item you had to enter a Tracking Dimension group. When you create a Tracking dimension group you will notice that Site and Warehouse are always active, and you can't de-activate them. So the best way to handle this is for Service items is to declare a default sales and purchase site on the Released products > Manage inventory > Default order settings form; and for that default site, a default purchase and sales warehouse on the Site specific order settings form. Then when you add the service item to a purchase order or a sales order the system will set the Site and Warehouse for you automatically.

    Go to the purchase order line, in the dimension display show the warehouse and define it.

    The item has a dimension group where you have configured it to require the warehouse, so you must specify it on the transaction.

    This error message you are getting because you have Service Item set with Storage Dimension having Warehouse as active and Physical Inventory set

    considering removing Physical Inventory option.

    If it is required then may be you can specify the Warehouse at Purchase Line level and proceed.

    Please verify and let me know if need more information.
