CF9.0.2 2nd instance Service Unavailable

I have a server with Windows Server 2008, IIS 7, Cf9.0.2 updated with all of the latest patches and hot fixes, multi server installation. I created a 2nd CF instance and cannot get the website to work. I get Service Unavailable when trying to hit the website. I created a test.html in the website's root directory and get same when I try to go to the html page. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. here is what I did to create the instance

- create newwebsite in IIS
- CF admin, Instance manager, create a new instance with the option to create a Windows service
- copy JRun4/bin/jvm.config to jvm2.config
- jrunsvc -remove {newly created service}
- jrunsvc -install CF instance 2 with -config full_path_to_jvm2.config
- WebConfig Tool to create connector for the new IIS website connecting it to the newly created Windows service from 2 steps above. I checked configure it for CF
- reboot
- went into IIS and checked the Handler mappings and the handlers for the cfm files are correct.

I am stumped. Any help is appreciated!

IIS should work out of the box with it's default website.

in I.E type http://localhost/

Do you see the  IIS  default page?

If No:

1: From IIS management screen(inetmgr.exe)  Restart the IIS.

2: If above fails go to control panel and in Add/remove programs  Uninstall and reinstall the IIS.

I forgot to mention. I have 3 Coldfusion websites in in the 1st CF instance that work. It is the website in the 2nd CF instance that does not work.

For whatever reason the Application Pool was stopped for the site that was connected to the 2nd CF instance. Starting the AppPool got rid of the service unavailable error but I have a different issue now. Thanks.
