Problem Description: Changing the Default ScriptSrc Directory to a virtual directory in IIS *also* affects the built-in web server's administrator console. As a result, necessary JS files (jquery.js) cause a 404 within CF Administrator, breaking the site. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a virtual directory in IIS that points to cf_scripts/scripts. 2. Delete the original cf_scripts directory in IIS, originally created by the web connector. 3. Update the Default ScriptSrc Directory with CF Administrator and submit changes. Actual Result: Changing the default directory correctly redirects site traffic in IIS for the intended site, but incorrectly points the built-in web server to a physical directory that doesn't exist. Expected Result: Change the default script location for the external web server while allowing the built-in web server to reference the actual directory. Any Workarounds: 1. Copy the cf_scripts/scripts folder and paste into wwwroot. 2. Rename the new directory to match the virtual directory in IIS. *As of writing, tracker.adobe.com does not list CF 2018 as a selectable version. Filing under CF 2016 as that is the next most recent release.
