We just reinstalled ColdFusion MX7 on a Windows 2000 server. This machine used to have an old version ColdFusion MX 6 on it, but that has been uninstalled. There seem to be remenants from the uninstallation left on the machine, but the MX version does not appear in the add/remove programs list, or in the services list anymore.
When attempting to use ODBC datasources, the following error is encountered:
java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][SequeLink Server]The specified data source is not defined.
The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SequeLink JDBC Driver][SequeLink Server]The specified data source is not defined
If I go to edit or verify a ODBC source in the administrator, the following error is returned:
The ColdFusion MX 7 ODBC Server service is not running or has not been installed.
I have tried using the SequeLink Setup CFServiceController.exe program to reinstall the ODBC services, but every time it installs "ColdFusion MX ODBC Agent" and "ColdFusion MX ODBC Server" it should be installing MX 7, not MX.
When it installs the wrong version, the services will not start, instead they say the specified file cannot be found.
In addition, we have been having intermittent crashes of JRun, requiring the service to be restarted. When it fails, HTTP 500 errors are sent to the visitors such as this:
The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.
Could not connect to JRun Server.
Generally, the service is not responsive (it must be force-ended in task manager, services.msc is unable to communicate with it.)
