How To Fix The Adobe ColdFusion 10 Amazon AMI

There is a glitch in the official ColdFusion Amazon AMI which even though it is an Enterprise version does not support multiple instances. I am sure Adobe will issue a fix of some kind but until then this is how to work-around to a functioning install. Firstly a little background to what we think is the core of the issue...
This setting in the neo-metric.xml file for both the "cfusion" instance and the new instance we created had this port variable with the same value "8500".
Here is the workaround in case it helps others
There are two files which need to be edited on each instance, 1 in each instance, we had two, "cfusion" and "testinstance-01"...
Make sure the ports in each are different, as I mentioned above after the install and after we created that testinstance-01, they were both set to 8500
The next file to edit is
A word of warning here, these files look very different because of comments in the cfusion copy.
In C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\conf\server.xml, we need to uncomment some section...
<Connector executor="tomcatThreadPool" maxThreads="50"
and comment this...<!--internal webserver end -->
In C:\ColdFusion10\testinstance-01\runtime\conf\server.xml, which as we say looks different change to port number from 8500 to 8501...
<Connector port="8501" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol" connectionTimeout="20000" redirectPort="8443" executor="tomcatThreadPool">
After making these changes the two instances came up on the internal web server on their respective ports and we added another instance and that was created correctly. I hope this helps someone.
