DO NOT RUN ColdFusion 11 Update 5! It breaks several things!

1.
local.encPassword = encrypt(“#local.randString#”, “xxxx”, “AES”, “Base64”);

local.randString must be in quotes wit #s.

encrypt(local.randString, “xxxx”, “AES”, “Base64”);

will break.

newUserID is not defined. cfstoredproc does not return the results any longer. SQL Server stored proc runs fine without any errors but the out params disappear.

this sucks!

Chad,

The bug has been reopened. Thanks for pointing this out.

About the updater, good to know that you have it installed, but it sure would have been nice to find out why it failed in the first place.

@Piyush,
I was able to install the update if I installed it on each instance separtly. I have also emailed you as well because the update did not resolve the bug I reported about the cfcontent tag. (Bug 3853569)

@Chad,
For some reason, I missed the log extracts from failed update installation, that you posted in your comments earlier.

Looks like you have multiple CF instances, and the updater is not able to copy or create files in the update install directory (typically //hf-updates/).
Possible reasons can be write permission to the location or files being used by another process.

In case this is still unresolved, can you please reach out to cfsup@adobe.com (or directly to me at pnayak@adobe.com) so that we can take a closer look at your installation.

I can confirm Adam’s observation (I just hadn’t used that feature to have noticed it since applying the update). And I have confirmed I had no errors in applying the update (in the update log, wihch I would always propose people check when they experience errors in the admin or CF after applying an update). I’ll assume Adam had none in his also.

And FWIW, I confirmed this on a machine where I had not yet applied update 5 prerelease. Before the update, I could access the “view undelivered email” feature just fine. After the update, I get the same error Adam does. I’ll add that (since I have debugging enabled on that machine), I do also see more error info that may help someone:

Client verification failure.
You must have a valid login to access this page.

In seeing that, I wondered if this might be a bigger problem with other features of the admin, or perhaps on doing features that execute upon clicking a submit button in the interface. But I tested the “verify all connections” on the DSN page, and it worked fine. I also did a “clear template cache” operation. So it’s not some sort of global failure of the Admin API or something, as might be suggested by the wording of the error.

And @Adam, I suspect the response from Adobe will be “please open a bug report”. If you do, feel free to add the additional error info (and let us know here when you do, so I and perhaps others can add votes/comments to it.)

I’ve been looking at a migration from CF9 to CF11 and have downloaded the latest update. It seems that CF11 denies using to insert code from one file into another if the file being inserted isn’t a CFML (.cfm) file. The system I’m migrating uses to insert .cfx files. Rewriting the code would be onerous. Anybody have ideas on how we can move to CF11 without a rewrite?

Looks like Update 5 breaks the “View Undelivered Mail” feature in CF Administrator. With it installed, I get an error alert that says, “Error retrieving markup for element mailBody : Client verification failure. [Enable debugging by adding ‘cfdebug’ to your URL parameters to see more information]” And then this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xzr5wog772hh36/Screenshot%202015-03-02%2010.55.16.png?dl=0

If I downgrade back to Update 4 (official stable release), the errors go away and I can see my undeliverable mail.

Impressive! Bigger update than CF11U3’s 111 fixes. And looks like there’s also fixes for tickets filed years ago. Will begin testing soon.

Thanks!,

Great to see you guys cranking on the bug fixes! I count just under 120 in this update (including several regarding charting, which has been a particular sore spot for some).

I know some could twist things and say “yeah, but the problem is that there are so many bugs to be fixed”. Still, for others who may have complained hoping to see their bugs fixed, here’s hoping that these or any of the other recent updates may address those for them.

Chad,
If you are on a standalone installation of CF, the update jar should download at /cfusion/hf-updates
and the installation log file should be created at /cfusion/hf-updates/hf-11-00005. Can you check these locations for new files by “date modified”.
