Site Directory Site cannot be an arbitrary site
The installation manual says in chapter 3 that the site used for hosting the Site Listings list can be "any site or sub-site, anywhere on the farm". However, it looks like this isn't true. The "Configure the Site Directory Site" Central
Admin page doesn't allow you to select an arbitrary site. Instead it only allows me to select a Site Collection using a Site Collection picker. The Site Listings list will then be created in the root site of the selected Site Collection. I've expected to be
able to select a specific site, located anywhere in the farm.
Am I correct or am I missing something?
