Problem Description:
The (since withdrawn) updater 3's installation instructions specifiy:
"After applying the update, reconfigure the connectors using wsconfig tool. It is in{cf_install_home}/cfusion/runtime/bin."

This should be part of the automated install process.

It's half-arsed that easily-automatable steps like this need to be done manually.

Steps to Reproduce:
Read the instructions

Actual Result:
Need to perform manual steps to use the automated updater

Expected Result:
Not to have to perform manual steps to use the automated updater

Any Workarounds:

+1, the updater should run wsconfig's -upgrade command automatically. If it really _must_ unconfigure/reconfigure all sites, then it could still do so automatically as long as it creates a backup of any files it'd modify (such as & applicationHost.config).

Make it a fully automated process to make any necessary config change without doing extra manual steps

The whole point of the auto updater was so we did not have to do hacky manual steps to update the coldfusion server. Not having the updater do it all correctly is a hassle and with the update 3 actually brought down one of my servers to where I had to do a restore of the whole coldfusion drive and fall back to an older iis config file.

I agree that this should be fixed for future updates. Make the updates as painless as possible! :)

wsconfig -upgrade command will now be run at the time of update installation in case there is a change in connector-specific files (.dll/.so files). This fix will be available as the part of Raijin.
