CF 2016 Service won't start

Hello,

I am in the midst of configuring an upgraded, CF2016 based platform for my domain. I will be deploying this in a high volume, enterprise setting, so the servers I am setting up will be multi-instance servers on a windows 2012R2 platform. They will be clustered on each individual VM, but load balanced externally through an F5 load balancer. This is on a Nutanix VM host.

I started this process by doing a clean install of ColdFusion 2016 on a clean Windows 2012R2 VM, and after successfully installing CF, and doing the basic setup in CFAdmin, pulling over data sources etc., I think created an image to use as the basis for our server builds. I have then created two VMs, which I have been building up as our new hosts. In the process of configuring them, I ran into an issue where I could not get the root / primary instance of coldfusion to start it's service. On both of these hosts, I can get any other services to start properly. I have not tested to see if I can hit sites on them,  but I definitely CAN hit their CFAdmin instances. In checking various logs I have not yet found a clue to what the problem is but I am still looking.

Thinking I had made a mistake configuring something, I made another clone of the VM image just after I had set it up. The CF Sevice was running fine. I did install some routine windows updates, and found I was no longer able to fire up the CF Service on that brand new VM. I have removed all the windows updates, but to no avail. I am still not able to start the CF root instance (the only one on this new VM).

Running the service on the command line I get the following...

I am not seeing any obvious failures, but am I missing something? The service is NOT started / available at the end of this...

[UPDATE]

In doing some further looking, I believe I may have enabled the J2EE session variables on those services I am now having trouble restarting. While not exactly the same issue as what was noted in a CF11 install at:

I *was* able to disable a perviously working separate instance of CF2016 by accessing it's admin interface, enabling J2EE session variables, and then stopping and restarting the service, which it never successfully completes. Now, to figure out how to disable that in the config files, and post a bug report.....
