Getting this error when attempting to update Server Settings:

 

"Error","ajp-nio-127.0.0.1-8009-exec-8","03/31/21","10:36:29","cfadmin","Provider org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl not found The specific sequence of files included or processed is: C:\ColdfusionX\cfusion\wwwroot\CFIDE\administrator\settings\server_settings.cfm, line: 675 "

 

System Specifics:

   Windows Server 2016 on a Physical Server.

 

Any ideas on why it would be doing this?

Other information:

It seems to update Timeout Requests after seconds and Enable Per Application Settings, even though I get the error page, but everything after that it does not register the change.

Might this error be caused by ColdFusion missing a library?  Verify that the following file exists: C:\ColdFusionX\cfusion\lib\xalan.jar

jmaitino, I have news, some may be good, some maybe not.

 

First, that would be odd, indeed, if (even with that error) a change on one CF Admin page would change SOME but not ALL settings on that page.

 

As for the error, note the reference to ".xalan.processor.Transformer". As you may know, the CF admin configuration settings are stored in XML files, with a name in teh form of neo-*.xml, in the cfusion/lib folder (or instancename/lib, if you use multiple instances) . In the case of that settings page, I expect most are in the neo-runtime.xml. So you may want to open that, and better try to check out if it's well-formatted.

 

Sadly, while CF does keep a backup of any changes to the files, it keeps only ONE generation, so you will see a neo-runtime.bak. And that can be updated for any of various reasons, so that you may find your backup file is of no use. Still, make a copy of the two neo-runtime.bak and .xml files you have, to protect them for the next steps. You could then stop CF, rename the current .xml file, and then rename the bak to that, then restart CF and see if the problem is resolved (can you now save changes on that page). Do beware in reverting to the bak this way, you could lose settings you had made that were in the "real" (broken) one and not the "bak"). If that does NOT help, you may want to revert back to the original .xml you had.

 

But maybe you can find a backup made by your OS or some software, and then you could try that (again, you need to stop CF, put in the restored neo-runtime.xml file, and then start CF and test things).

 

The bummer about all this is that there can be occasions when the XML files become corrupt--it sometimes happens when people kill CF (rather than stop it gracefully, or when that does not work), or when CF crashes, or the box is rebooted and CF is not able to shitdown gracefully. Again, it's a bummer both that there is just the one generation backup (I have filed a feature request asking them to keep more), and that there's no provision for better-detecting corupted files or easily reverting to the backup.

 

Finally, if you are absolutely stuck, as a last resort you could also rename the neo-runtime.xml (while CF is down) and start CF. It will create a new version, set to the defaults. At least then you could proceed to make your intended updates--but again you will have lost all the changes you made before, that were stored in that file.

 

I will note that there is (since CF10) an audit.log, found in the CF logs folder, which tracks many (not all) changes made in the CF admin. It doesn't track all the details for every change it does track, but it could help you to at least be reminded of some things that WERE changed.

 

Again, the best thing would be if you had a backup you could revert to. 

 

Let us know if any of this gets you going.

A couple things, I deleted neo-runtime.* and restarting the service did not create it again.  My guess is that it will check for neo-runtime.bck and rename it.

I extracted the original neo-runtime.xml and put it in there and got the following, when I clicked submit on the same page:

No such file exists, however all other configuration pages appear to not have any issues reading/writing their neo-*.xml configuration files.

 

I cannot find a xalan.jar anywhere within the install files or C:\ColdfusionX.

I did further research and indeed the two ther installed contained the xalan.jar file, so I copied that vesion over and performed a reinstall, it worked.  Thanks.

My apologies, I didn't form those sentences very well and failed to do a spell check on my work.   Of course...

 

So, the method I used to install cold fusion was by copying the contents of the .zip (not the executable install, there seems to be issues with using the executable on a virtual machine).   Apparently, the file was missing from the unzipped contents of the install folder, specifically xalan.jar was missing.   This caused the error described above.  I did a compare of a separate Adobe ColdFusion 2021 install on another server and found that the xalan.jar file was present there, so I migrated the working install folder over and performed a re-install. 

 

TL;DR: There was a missing .jar file from the install folder which caused the inability to update various configuration settings using /CFIDE/Administrator.

Thanks for the update. Some questions remain (for the sake of others, as much as for you perhaps).

 

First, when you say you copied the extracted zip (new in cf2021), are you saying you copied it as extracted from the zip directly? Or might the content have been manipulated by anything at all? I only ask because it may seem your experience would be a universal problem, but I've neither heard of it or experienced it in my zip extraction, that I recall. (Am writing from my phone, so can't prove it 100% atm.)

 

Second, you refer to an issue with using the cf2021 installer on a vm. What problem is that? Again, I have not heard of or experienced it. 

 

Since some people may read this discussion (nor or in the future), it seems important to not leave such statements (that lead to such questions) to be open-ended.

Ok, so I created a "cfinst.bat" file who's soul purpose is to install, configure and harden a cold fusion instance using IIS.  I manually extracted the contents of the .zip file into a folder within cfinst.bat directory.  From that folder, I perform a robocopy of the folder to the application's directory (C:\ColdfusionX), then run the cfinstall.bat to create the service.   That folder did not fully copy over from the source before attempting the install, there were files missing from that install.

The issue I had with the executable had to do with wsconfig.exe.  For whatever reason, it would not run on a virtual machine, specifically an Azure virtal machine.  The work around was to use the .zip file install and to create scripts to manually configure the Jakarta ISAPI redirect entries for the web site(s).  I am still unable to use the wsconfig.exe manually.  This issue is most likely annotated in another community post.

Thanks for the update. So first, it seems you are confirming that the problem of that xalan.jar missing was indeed just a problem in your own process of setting things up, rather than something that others should necessarily expect. Is that right?

 

Then as for your challenge running the wsconfig, I think I may be able to help there. I wonder if your problem is really unique to a VM. (That ay be your experience, or you may have read it online perhaps.) Instead, it may be that you have not seen that you need to take an extra step for that to work.

 

From the available docs on that zip deployment/install process , it indicates that "You must first install VC 2012 Runtime. Without this runtime, the connector and the htmltopdf package will not work a expected." That runtime is available here, as also mentioned in the substantial Adobe blog post on the zip install/deployment process, both of which are worth a read if doing the new zip install/deployment.

 

While you can indeed do manual tweaking to get the web server connector working (with changes in both IIS and the CF folders), it's certainly an error-prone process so I hope you may be able to avoid it going forward.

 

Glad you're all set, otherwise, and good on BKBK in catching that simple solution of your missing that one file, leading you to see that it was the copy process that failed you, and that you were missing still others that you caught.
