I have a 64bit VM windows server running Windows Server 2008 R2.
I installed Oracle drivers for both 32bit and 64bit. Have TNS for both setup for my Oracle database.
The setup of the datasource, verified fine.
The web application will connect fine to the database and works sometimes against it.
But will error out at some point, error is: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver]TCP/IP error, connection refused.
The database is not the issue since this application and database is running perfectly on an older server that is being decommissioned.
I had first tested with the Coldfusion trial version and everything worked perfectly without error. Problem appeared to be introduced
after setting the license key. Also, in the trial version, I was not using the ODBC socket, but there was specifically an Oracle type
Help with this would be very much appreciated - I am stuck.
You say, “also, in the trial version, I was not using the ODBC socket“. Are you using that (the ODBC socket-type DSN) now? Why? Is the driver you got form Oracle an ODBC or JDBC driver? If the latter (as your error message seems to indicate), then use the “other”-type for creating the DSN. Let us know how that goes or what you think.
Would you say this is the correct syntax?
I get an error:
Is there an additional path I need to add?
It appears that the issue was related to the Java and JVM settings in the CF Admin.
My CF Class Path was empty, once I applied the correct path, I was able to set the DataSource to the JDBC and it’s working.
This case is closed!

Good to hear, Scott. As for your first message today, with the syntax and the error, those both did not make it into the forum somehow.
But are you saying you DID switch to using JDBC and the “other” style of DSN? Good to hear. Yep, adding an “other” dsn for a new driver (that CF does not come with) does require that you point CF to that driver, and restart.
So with that, would you think it appropriate to mark that first answer I gave as “correct”? That’s the best way to mark a forum thread “closed”. But thanks for the update, regardless.
