I was wondering if anyone has experienced behavior in ArcMap where it just stops creating locators?
we are seeing this in 10.5.1 where it used to be able to create a locator in 3min, we attempted to build the locator again and 30min later we decided to stop the process. We are following address locator 101 steps, this locator does not exist within a gdb.
Starting at 10.5.x, locators are not supported within the GDB; https://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/latest/manage-data/geocoding/creating-an-address-locator.htm
What happens when you create the locator in a file folder.
sorry if i wasnt clear, i stated that this locator does NOT exist in a gdb. i put that in there because i had seen a lot of talk about this being an issue for people. Again, the locator is not in a gdb, it is in a folder location all by itself.
the process runs monthly, on 3/5 it last ran and only took 3 minutes to complete.
we tried kick off the process this week and it failed, there is no major underlying change to the data.
What happens if you create the locators to a local file folder on the machine, as a test? Is the time the same, 30+ minutes?
Was there any other process going on in the background (editing, GDB maintenance, etc.) during the locator creation?
we are not using suggestions for our results, we found that was providing some pretty dangerous results so we strongly discouraged our client from using them until it was improved upon.
we have 3.5 million addresses for the locator. We did find that there were some issues with the machine so we have decided to step away from this issue until IT has a chance to dive into the machines. So we have moved onto our second issue which i commented on today, it was a thread you were previously involved with.
