We want to move from Coldfusion 9 to Coldfusion 11.

Is there a way to copy all setiings from CF9 to CF11?

I tried it with a Coldfusion Archive, create in CF9 and deploy it in CF11.
The problem was that there were no settings imported, for example the Data Sources were not imported.

Is there another way?

After some searching I found the solution.
In the car file I found ip addresses of the old server which I had to change to the ip address of the new server.

After that the import of the car file works fine.

ict-centraal,

Were there any errors reported when deploying the CAR archive. Can you check if any errors have been recorded in the <cf11_root>\cfusion\logs directory. You would normally find migration specific logs in that location that would be prefixed/suffixed with the name of the archive you would have created. If there were any exception, the detailed stack trace would be in 'exceptions.log' file in the same location.

You mean the IP addresses of the Database servers. right?.

The archive file would, of course, create xml files containing the details (including the IP add. of the machines hosting the DB) of the DSN, as it was in the old CF set-up.

I made a snapshot of my virtual machine and installed CF11 which imported the CF9 settings.

If I am right the settings of CF are stored in the directory c:\Coldfusion11\cfusion\lib in xml files: neo*.xml.
Is it enough to copy these xmls files to the new server after stopping the CF services?
