When upgrading ArcGIS Server 10.4.1 and earlier to 10.5, hosted geocode services that reference a locator in a geodatabase fail to create an instance, and return an error message in the Server logs:
Failed to initialize server object 'geocode_br501': 0x80004005: Working with locators in geodatabases is no longer supported
If address locators were published as geocode services by reference and were stored in a geodatabase (file or enterprise) prior to 10.5, they no longer start if ArcGIS Server is upgraded to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 by keeping the existing site. An error message is returned in the ArcGIS Server error logs when the service is restarted.
