ColdFusion 9.0.1 upgrade issue


So, after successfully testing CF 9.0.1 on the dev server for 2 weeks today I decided to update the production servers. Upgrade on development server was without any hickups, so I was expecting the same on production. Well, I should know better.

After the update I started getting a database error:

"macromedia.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerLicense cannot be cast to macromedia.jdbc.sqlserverbase.BaseLicense".

Thanks to Google, found Adam Lehman's comment on Ben Forta's blog about this issue. The resolution was easy and it worked. Basically it was an issue related to Macromedia (why ???) DB driver and I needed to revert back to the old one.

But for that comment, I would have been struggling to revert back to 9.0. I think Adobe should have updated the faq and/or release notes to mention this issue...
