CF9 Web server configuration tool not finding coldfusion

Jan 15, 2010 12:58 PM

Hi,

 

I'm having problems setting up coldfusion 9, and I've narrowed it down to the web server configuration tool.

 

First, the server is running a brand new install of Windows 2008 R2 64bit. It's running IIS 7.5, and I've enabled ISAPI filters+extension, and IIS6 metabase compatibility.

The server is one of 1&1's new cloud offerings. I don't think this should be the problem, unless it's a way they've configured it.

I've already successfully installed CF9 on the same OS on a dedicated server with a different host.

 

Anyway, running the CF9 64 bit installer seems to work ok, but it doesn't configure up IIS. I've tried installing/uninstalling/re-imaging the server several times with no success.

To confirm my suspicions that CF was installing ok, I tried it using the built in web-server on port 8500, and that works fine.

 

I've tried running the web server configuration gui tool, but I get the following message:

 

Could not connect to any JRun/ColdFusion servers on host localhost.
Possible causes:
o Server not running
-Start Macromedia JRun4 or ColdFusion MX server
o Server running
-JNDI listen port in jndi.properties blocked by TCP/IP filtering or firewall on server
-host restriction in security.properties blocking communication with server

 

Googling this found several blog posts for earlier version of CF. Most suggest running the 'netstat -an' command, which gives:

I've removed a few lines that mentioned the external IP of the server, but I don't think they're important.

The main thing, is that it seems to be listening on port 2932 which is configured in jndi.properties

 

At this point I'm stuck.

I did find some blog posts that suggested adding some arguments to narrow the ports scanned when you run the configuration tool. I tried them without success - as they were quite old, is it possible they have changed with the latest config tool?

 

The other thing I've contemplated is connecting IIS manually. However, I can't find any instructions for doing this with CF9.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Gareth

    Do you mean you did something like this on the command line? If so, what was the result?

     

    C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\jre\bin\java.exe -DWSConfig.PortScanStartPort=2932 -DWSConfig.PortScanCount=1 -jar C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\lib\wsconfig.jar
