    CFB2 and viewing remote console

    Scot.Hershman

      My company maintains a development CF8 Server, they are going to be upgrading it to CF9 shortly so I wanted to get some info about what components would need to be installed for being able for developers to view the console on this remote server.

       

      I am using cfb2 and love the <cfdump output="console" var=""> tag's ability to view right on the console. I am using this on a local cf9 developers edition and want to be able to do the same once our company upgraded.

       

      Question is: Are there additional server components that need to be installed for me to view the server console on this remote server? I do not need any of the additional functionality like starting and stopping services. Are there additional permissions I would need? Sandbox? RDS?

       

      Thanks in advance!

          Scot, I've not used that feature (dump to console), but I am assuming that it would only work if you start the CF instance from within CFB itself. As such, you would then need that extra functionality to start/stop CF from within CFB if the CF instance is remote to the machine running CFB (such as a central development server like you describe).

           

          It works for you on your local CF9 because that is local to you and I assume you're starting it within CFB. Is that right? If not, we may be able to use that info to better understand how it works and how you may be able to make it work for you.

           

          Perhaps others with more experience using that feature will chime in with more thoughts.

            You are correct, it only seems to work if the server is started within CFB. I stopped and restarted the server using windows service manager and could not see the dump information.

             

            Thanks for the response.
