Known issues in this release

Issue 1: ColdFusion (2016 release) Update 7 installations through the ColdFusion Administrator may fail on certain Linux (GUI) configurations that include the X-Window system. The issue occurs due to an upgrade of InstallAnywhere 2017. As a workaround, install Update 7 manually with sudo privileges.

Issue 2: If server.xml already contains an entry of the property packetSize , then the update does not check for the entry. The update adds another entry in the xml for packet size. The server does not start and throws the following exception:

Work-around: Open the server.xml file and remove the duplicate entry of packetSize. Restart the server.
