Failure Type: Non Functioning

Vote Count: 1

Problem Description:
Still same issue as bug 3910257
Instances in a cluster won't start. 

Steps to Reproduce:
I did a clean install of CF11 and upgraded immedialy to HF5.
Create instances and cluster and add instances to the cluster with sticky session on.
At this stage the instances still work

Next configure a loopback adapter and do the next three configuration lines in a powershell:
o	netsh interface ipv4 set interface "Team 1" weakhostreceive=enabled
o	netsh interface ipv4 set interface "Loopback" weakhostreceive=enabled
o	netsh interface ipv4 set interface "Loopback" weakhostsend=enabled

The adapter and config steps are neccesary in a direct routing load balancing environment.

Actual Result:
Instances in the cluster start after long time and stops immediately after

Any Workarounds:
- rollback to HF 3

Found another workaround which is downgrade Apache Tomcat in the runtime/lib folders to version 7.0.52, which was used with the original release of CF11.

I am unable to observe the issue with the steps in the bug report. The clustered instances keep running once started. Can you confirm the following: - Did you choose to install the CF instances as windows service. - What is the error logged. I don't see any start-up errors in the attached logs. Can you start the new CF instance from the command prompt and share the output?

Hi, yes, the services are installed as windows services. I cannot reproduce the error now, because I reverted all installations to update 2. I'll try to setup a new test environment to produce the error. In beginning after a fresh install everything was still working fine. The issue started after enabling the loopback adapter.

Finally be able to get CF11 clusters working with HF3 and later. Thanks to Chris Tierney's blog I finally found the real solution for this issue: You have to turn off Tomcat persistent sessions: Open {cf instance}/runtime/conf/context.xml Uncomment <Manager pathname=”” /> Save file and close Start ColdFusion
