    coldfusion-error.log full of "INFO: Cookies: Unknown Special Cookie"?

    DCwebGuy Level 1

      Why do I see all these messages in coldfusion-error.log? There are tons of them.  This is CF10/Win2008/IIS7.5.  Single server, medium site, pretty typical set up.

          This is a known Tomcat issue. To stop the warnings, go to \cfusion\runtime\conf\logging.properties.Set org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].level to WARN and then restart CF.

            Okay, good to know!  It would have been nice if this was fixed in the last round of updates.  I will make the change in logging soon.  Thank you.

              Hi, again.  I did that but I'm still getting some of those errors in my log (yes, I restarted the server).  Here are other areas of that logging.properties file, and I wonder if the other values need to be changed from INFO to WARN as well?

              # Facility specific properties.

              # Provides extra control for each logger.

              ############################################################

               

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].level = WARN (this is the one I changed)

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].handlers = 2localhost.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

               

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].level = INFO (what about this?)

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].handlers = 3manager.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

               

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].level = INFO (and this?)

              org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].handlers = 4host-manager.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

                Hi, again.  I've changed them all, and rebooted my server several times since, and I'm still getting these annoying messages in the log.  This is in the logging.properties file under c:\coldfusion10\cfusion\runtime\conf

                 

                ############################################################

                # Facility specific properties.

                # Provides extra control for each logger.

                ############################################################

                 

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].level = WARN

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].handlers = 2localhost.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

                 

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].level = WARN

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/manager].handlers = 3manager.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

                 

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].level = WARN

                org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[Catalina].[localhost].[/host-manager].handlers = 4host-manager.org.apache.juli.FileHandler

                 

                 

                But in my coldfusion-error-1.log I'm still seeing this as of today.  Is there anywhere else I should look to change the setting??

                  I recallI that I had three logging.properties files. Edit each and also look for a section called "Default global logging level" and ensure that this has ".level= SEVERE". The logging.properties files that I have are in c:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\conf\, c:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\jetty\jre\lib and c:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\jnbridge\jre\lib. If this doesn't work for you it may be best to email Adobe install support on cfinstal@adobe.com.

                    So I did that I think it finally helped with that specific log issue.  HOWEVER, by changing those log settings everywhere it prevented critical tiools like Jconsole and Jprofiler from running, so just FYI.
