Default Document not being honored after upgrade to CF11

Windows 2008 R2

IIS 7.5

ColdFusion 11

We just upgraded our production environment from CF10 to CF11. We ran onto some snags with the dev environment on the upgrade, but not this particular issue.

The issue seems to be that the default/welcome document is not being honored.


If I go to http://server/dir/default.cfm everything is cool, but if I go to http://server/dir/ I get a 404 error.

HTTP Error 404.2 - Not Found

The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the ISAPI and CGI Restriction list settings on the Web server.

Detailed Error Information

Error Code0x800704ec

Requested URLhttp://server:80/default.cfm
Physical PathX:\dir\root\default.cfm
Logon MethodAnonymous
Logon UserAnonymous

Now I have checked/deleted/added the Handler Mappings, ISAPI Filters, and ISAPI and CGI Restrictions until I am half-mad. I have deleted the connector with wsconfig loads of times, and the only thing I see that stands out is in the isapi_redirect.log:

[debug] handle_notify_event::jk_isapi_plugin.c (2505): [/] is not a servlet url

I have checked permissions, checked everything I can find, and this time the forum below is not the answer. The IIS server serves up all the cfm files, etc. fine, it is just using the dir only that we have a problem (again).

Oh the irony, the closest issue I see in the forums, is from my own when we upgraded to 10 > Default Document not being honored after upgrade to CF10
