CF Admin Error "Permission denied for creating Java object: coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory"
Yesterday we hit an issue I have not seen before and I wanted to blog it, in case it helps others. "Permission denied for creating Java object: coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory" suddenly reared its head in ColdFusion Administrator after the import of a ColdFusion Archive (CAR) file, on a brand new install of ColdFusion 9.0-9.01 Enterprise in multiple instance mode, this was on Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2, SP1. The full error was...
"Permission denied for creating Java object: coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory. Access to Java objects in the ColdFusion package has been disabled by the administrator."
Which was exactly the case, the install of ColdFusion we created the CAR file from had this checked under settings in ColdFusion Administrator "Disable access to internal ColdFusion Java components". Simply importing the CAR file to the newly installed ColdFusion instance broke ColdFusion Admin. So how did we fix it, an Adobe Knowledge Base article came to the rescue.
