Server troubleshooting continues June 15, 2006 9:20 am

On trying to start the cfmx (6.1) service I get the following message:

Windows could not start the ColdFusion MX Server on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 1.

The event log shows (for Application):

The ColdFusion MX Application Server service could not be started. Check that server “default” exists. Check the server “default” log files for more information.

And for MX 7:

The ColdFusion MX 7 Application Server service could not be started within 240 seconds. Increase the server startup timeout value using C:\CFusionMX7\runtime\jrunsvc.exe -starttimeout <seconds> "ColdFusion MX 7 Application Server".

I wonder if this is related:

Source:WinMgmt Warning! "WMI ADAP was unable to process the PerfDisk performance library due to a time violation in the open function."

The event viewer shows nothing interesting for DNS Server, IExplore, or Security. System however shows a warning for source Browser:

The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers fromthe browser master \\ROCKWELL on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{31C49F54-B9A1-4536-85E6-FCCF5D042F85}. The data is the error code. "Data: bytes: 0000: 35 00 00 00 5…"

That’s interesting because Rockwell is my development machine and should not be master of anything. Other server event warnings/errors:

Error: Source: Service Control Manager: The RMServer service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds. No action.
Error: Source: Service Control Manager: The RMServer service hung on starting.
Error: Source: Service Control Manager: The ColdFusion MX 7 Application Server service terminated with service-specific error 2.
Error: Source: Service Control Manager: The Windows Media Program Service service terminiated wtih service-specific error 16389.
Error: Source: The ColdFusion MX Application Server service terminated with service-specific error 1.
Warning: Time: 3:47 Source: BROWSER: The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\FREUD on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{31C49F54-B9A1-4536-85E6-FCCF5D042F85}. The data is the error code. Data: Bytes: 0000: 35 00 00 00 5…

Ok! What’s that?! \\FREUD is my wife’s computer and has no more business being a browser master than \\ROCKWELL. We were also fast asleep at that time.

[…] In continuing to try to troubleshoot my server problems I look into the Add/Remove programs to confirm that I do NOT have .Net 2.0 installed on a Windows2000 server. I notice a program called Ward170-I386 but can find no information on this program. Do I uninstall it? What if I put it there out of need and have since forgotten. […]

FYI:
the ‘master browser’ is a common windows thing where the network is setup using workgroups. network browsing ‘master’ status is delegated to any machine on the network following a ‘browser election’ which generally is won by the computer with the longest uptime (or something like that). it has nothing to do with what each computer does or doesn’t do.

(this is of course if you haven’t set up domain controllers or anything like that, see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/cnet/cnfi_brs_ecea.mspx?mfr=true

I had to uncheck Internet Enhanced Security otions under Control Panel\Add-Remove Programs\Microsoft Windows components on left hand side. Let it remove all enhanced security settings and then reboot the server.. After I did this all 3 cold fusion services started right Up!

Very cool. I’m not sure I ever solved that one. I’ll have to try that out.
