Publishing a locator service

ArcGIS Pro 2.4.0, ArcGIS Desktop 10.6.1., ArcGIS Server 10.6.1


I'm running into some problems trying to publish locator services and I wonder if I upgrading to Pro 2.4.2 will take of things. (I'm hesitant to upgrade just because I have my python env just how I like it, and I've been holding out for 2.5).


Some of the issues are security related, but we have the ability to do an end around to get past them.


I'm trying to publish to a stand alone server from ArcGIS Pro.  When I do so, I cannot 'see' all the directories that the server has; a co-worker with 2.4.2 can.  I started with publishing an 'old style' address locator; it publishes to the new folder, and I can use it from the rest service.  I can add it to a Pro session, but when I search for an address it never finds it.  I thought ArcGIS Pro could consume published old style locators; is this not the case? There may still be a security problem our end-around  didn't take care of, but I want to make sure I should be able to do what I'm attempting.


I then tried to publish a new style locator through ArcCatalog.  I can 'see' all the folders there, but when I select the new sty locator and analyze, it tosses an error  code of 00096 Locator is invalid.  Is not possible to publish new style locators with ArcCatalog?


Finally, I just published a new style locator from Pro, albeit to a new folder; I can add the new service to my pro session and it works.


I know that publishing to a stand alone server from Pro was new functionality at 2.4.0: were there any known issues with publishing a geocoding service that have been resolved at 2.4.2?
