I have installed CF9 Enterprise (32bit install) on a Windows 2008 Server SP2, 32 bit server (two of them, in fact), with Web Server / IIS role installed. Installed Role Services of Application Development (ASP.NET, ASP, CGI, ISAPI extensions/filters, SSI's) role installed . Then installed the 9.01 patch, ran the CF "Web Server Configuration Tool" for all sites (there is only the Default Web site installed). Did not install the IIS6 management extensions (since the Web Server Configuration Tool doesn't like that to be installed.
I was able to get to the Cold Fusion administrator (at http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm ) page, and login successfully. The System Information page shows ColdFusion Enterprise version 9,0,1,274733 , with the OS of Windows Server 2008 R2 (OS Version 6.1), Adobe Driver version 4.0 (Build 0005).
This CD Administrator page does not show the Enterprise Manager menu choice on the left side. If I use an address of http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/entman/index.cfm (after verifying those files are in the 'entman' folder), I get an HTTP Error 500.0 page. Sometimes that page will be inside the CF Adminstrator page frame, but still the 500.0 errorr. The files are in the 'physical path' as F:\inetpub\wwwroot\CFIDE\administrator\entman\index.cfm .
Have done massive searches on the Adobe forums here, and via other search engines, and have not found the solution. Have tried seting the Application Pool Defaults to "enable 32-bit applications' to 'true' or 'false', either setting still gets the 500.0 error on the 'entman' page.
All settings on the server are set to default values. I have done a full uninstall, reinstall of CF; a full rebuild of the server, but still the 500 error.
The "Adobe ColdFusion Server Manager" application works OK; I have installed the latest version of Adobe Air.
Am extremely puzzled as to why the Enterprise Managr cannot be run. (And a bit frustrated also.)
