Seeking a CF2021 neo-query.xml file

Hi - I am new to this forum and while I have asked about this as a response to a different two-year-old thread about neo-cron.xml, I worry that it will be harder to see there because it's off-topic.

Overly simplifying a sequence of events and intentionally eliding full backstory (for now at least), the long and short of it is that I am looking for a CF2021 copy of neo-query.xml because of an error I received (which I can't quote now because a hasty reversion to a pre-update snapshot removed the log entries containing it) which according to references I consulted at the time seemed to indicate a problem with neo-query.xml. I looked and did not find one. The sequence of events that brought me to that point seemed also to have put some binary into my neo-datasource.xml file. 
I would like to know if I should have a neo-query.xml file in CF2021 hf 11 and if so, where I could find a copy. (Charlie Arehart's normally extremely helpful archive of neo*.xml files does not have a version of this file)

Neo-query.xml is a file that definitely existed in previous versions of Coldfusion, and it still appears in a 2021-dated Adobe list of XML configuration files in Coldfusion (Purpose and location of XML configuration files used in ColdFusion (adobe.com)), but I think what I am hearing is that it's not actually in CF2021 (?).. is this what you are saying?

@Trevor294622528ybt , since there is no neo-query.xml file in ColdFusion 2021, then it means that recent ColdFusion versions no longer need it. If, as you say, the neo-datasource.xml file contains binary content, then it is possibly corrupt or encrypted.

 

Chances are, it was encrypted. In fact, someone once asked in this very forum how to encrypt neo-datasource.xml. So, ask around in your team.

To be clear, for the sake of readers, that discussion there was someone WANTING to encrypt that file, and we were explaining then how it's NOT to be encrypted. CF would not be able to process it if it was, from all my years working with these files with thousands of folks.

 

And as I noted there, the PASSWORDS in that file are encrypted, as are all in neo xml files, for any cf admin password fields. The person there then asked for clarification on THAT encryption.

 

So Trevor, if you find the neo-datasource.xml file to be binary, is this really a file being used by cf presently? Or is it perhaps some representation of the files as of some past point in time? Someone could encrypted (or even zipped) the file. But I'm not aware of cf ever leaving or using that file in some binary form. I'd love to learn if there's some case when it does.
