I am running CF11 using Tomcat 7 and jdk1.7.0_45. I have non-SSL sites that execute the exact same task fine. However for my SSL enabled sites, the task will not run. Does anyone have an idea as to what is causing this?
Perhaps you need to add the SSL certificate to the CF Java keystore? EG
keytool -importcert -storepass changeit -noprompt -alias friendly_name -keystore
..\lib\security\cacerts -trustcacerts -file d:\temp\sslcertificate_file.cer
I understand CF11 is using JRE in 1.7.0_45, check CFadmin i system information. CF will require a restart to re-read change to trusted keystore.
I can confirm that cfschedule does work with SSL and yes you will need to import the certificate or root certificate into your certificate store if it is not one issued by a "well known" provider that the jre supports. The gotcha is that the certificate domain must match the server name used in the cfschedule call. For us this meant that our www.domain.com cert did not work, even after importing, for https://127.0.0.1/... To fix this we created a hosts file entry so the request didn't have to round trip outside the box.
