Thanks for the upstate Ed. Sounds like a lot of work. Here's hoping your site will live again.

This server was an ESXi server that ran 3 VMs (AD server, SQL server and an IIS server which also ran Cold Fusion) I don't know when I'm going to be able to get it back up and running...if ever. I've got the webserver back on another ESXi server, but I don't have enough resources on this one ESXi server to run SQL...

Everything is dynamic and runs off of data on the SQL server...PKGs are BLOBS in the database as well as the actual code. All pages are generated on the fly on request. So unless someone is running Cold Fusion 4.5, there's not much of a site to run!
