Problem
 
When adding a ColdFusion DSN to a site in Helm it fails, and the following errors can be found in the Helm error logs:
 
2006-03-31 14:59:21 ColdFusionDSN.AddCFDSN 0-2147217378: The web service returned with a bad response{0}
2006-03-31 14:59:21 Website.IWeb_Execute 0-2147217378: The web service returned with a bad response{0}
2006-03-31 14:59:21 cCFDSN.AddEx 0-2147217378: The web service returned with a bad response{0}
2006-03-31 14:59:21 HELM:CCFDSN::Add 0-2147217378: The web service returned with a bad response{0}
 
Solution
 
This suggests that you are using the DevNet Edition of ColdFusion MX. This version outputs the following line on every page:
 
<META NAME="ColdFusionMXEdition" CONTENT="ColdFusion DevNet Edition - Not for Production Use.">

This stops web services from working because it alters the content header.  
 
You will need to install a full production version of ColdFusion MX in order for it to work with Helm.
