Coldfusion 11 on Windows 2016 Standard

Hi,

I have CF 11 on a production Windows Server 2008 R2.  I cloned it and upgraded it to Windows 2012 Standard, which appeared to leave things intact (at least I can bring up the CF Admin site).  I then upgraded that to Windows 2016 Standard and check the CF Admin again.  Still can get to it.

That said, am I asking for trouble running CF 11 on Windows 2016 Standard?  One of my developers indicated there were some compatibility issues.

Thanks!

Do you know the exact version? I haven't tried it, but this post mentions lack of support for IIS 10 prior to CF 11, Update 7.  They resolved it by downloading an updated wsconfig.jar

If you've already installed update 7, in theory it should "just work".

Unfortunately I'm away from the server at the moment and don't have access to it.  Will check when I get back in a few hours.  Thanks!

That update should have support for IIS 10.  Are you actually experiencing issues with CF11 issues on Win2016 or ... did the developers just report there were potential compatibility issues?

No apparent issues; the developer just recalled reading something about compatibility w/ 2016.  

I will do some more testing but wanted to ask first if there were any known issues.  Since these are virtual machines, I can roll back to Windows 2012 if needed.

Thanks!

Okay.  I'm not running 2016, but that's the main issue I was aware of ie lack of support for IIS 10

Will take it out of its sandbox for a few minutes to check it out.  The only thing I am concerned about is a license key conflict.  Since this was a clone of the production server, the license would be identical.  If it works there won't be any permanent  'twins' on the LAN, but can I temporarily remove the license key in CF and 'demote' it to a developer edition temporarily?  I don't know if 11 checks for license collision but I really don't want to find out.

In theory it should work, but I wouldn't swear to it.  You could always spin up an instance using a new install of the Dev edition. You'd have to install the same updates, but it'd avoid the chance of problems with Prod.

Just as a footnote; it worked just fine with the current release of CF.  Thanks!
