we have ColdFusion 10 standard edtition and just want to create a standard scheduled task with a Monthly interval or Weekly interval, how can I do that, keep getting the error above! And I really don't hope I need Enterprise edition for this simple task, it worked like a charm in CF 7 that we are upgrading to. Any workaround or hotfix?
Andy said it would be fixed in the first updater. Let's hope it's a lot sooner than that. Seems to me this issue would make CF10 Standard pretty much unusable for a production environment. It does for us, anyway. And for the previous two versions (CF8 and CF9) I think Adobe has released a grand total of one updater for each version over the products' lifetime, versus how many updates for Flash since version 11?
Not good, Adobe. A bug of this magnitude should be given a higher priority and a hotfix issued ASAP, instead of making us wait for it to come out with 37 other minor fixes in an Updater package.
Well, I surly hope this will come out soon, cause as David stated, this can't be run in an production environment, so we have a releas of our intranet end of september and I guess I have to keep our old CF7 up and running to handle the tasks for now. But really Adobe should offer those people that need this the full Enterprise version until they fix this issue..
Good news if you guys had not heard it: the hotfix did come out Friday.
While it doesn’t mention scheduled tasks in that blog entry, and it mentions several other task issues in the technote but NOT this issue of recurring scheduled tasks, I’m pretty sure it was fixed in this hotfix. Hope someone on this thread (with a Standard license key) may have a chance to test and report back.
Better news: the fix for this IS included in the new updater.
I just realized I was mistaken in saying that it wasn’t clear if it was. It is indeed listed. The problem is that on both the blog entry and the technote, it refers to “scheduled job” rather than “scheduled task”. Oddly, in the technote, it refers to scheduled task several times, and scheduled job just this once, when it lists as an included fix:
3194817 (ColdFusion 10 Standard Edition only) Can't create recurring scheduled jobs.
But sure, Mike, if you confirm it from experience I’m sure many would appreciate hearing it.
This bug is preventing us from updating from 9 to 10 Standard. On Win 2003 we installed CF10 but did NOT run migration wizard yet. We manually installed update 1, then update 9 from the jar files. Then ran migration wizard. Scheduled tasks not imported. Log file says "Advance scheduling support is not available in this edition of ColdFusion.
You can try these steps.
First take the backup of this file from CF 10 server. Go to "ColdFusion10\cfusion\lib" and search for an xml file "neo-cron.xml" copy it somewhere as a backup.
Now stop the ColdFusion 10 server and go to ColdFusion9\lib and copy this neo-cron.xml and paste to the "ColdFusion10\cfusion\lib"
Restart the ColdFusion 10 server and login and check if you have the scheule task in there or not.
This appears to work successfully. Yay. At the bottom of the Scheduled Tasks page in admin, under cluster setup heading is this error:
Variable DSNVALUE is undefined.
