Known issues in this release

  • On a Linux OS, in a clustered environment, after applying Update 4, you might see few log entries related to TcpFailureDetector. These entries are harmless and can be ignored.
  • ColdFusion 2016 Update 4 installations through the ColdFusion Administrator might fail on certain Linux configurations that include the X Window system. The issue was introduced due to an upgrade to InstallAnywhere 2017. As a workaround, install Update 4 manually with sudo privilege.
