Whole Server Migration by Rene van Wijk

clip_image002In a WebLogic Server cluster, most services are deployed homogeneously on all server instances in the cluster, enabling transparent fail-over from one server instance to another. In contrast, for 'pinned services' such as JMS and the JTA transaction recovery system are targeted at individual server instances within a cluster, WebLogic Server supports failure recovery with migration, as opposed to fail-over.
Migration in WebLogic Server is the process of moving a clustered WebLogic Server instance or a component running on a clustered server instance elsewhere in the event of failure. Upon failure, a migratable server is automatically restarted on the same machine, if possible. If the migratable server cannot be restarted on the machine where it failed, it is migrated to another machine. In addition, an administrator can manually initiate migration of a server instance.

Configure whole server migration

Before we configure whole server migration, we need to know the requirements:

  • The migratable server candidate machines have to be in the same subnet (because the virtual IP address must be valid on each candidate machine). Whole server migration uses a virtual IP address for each migratable server.
  • On each candidate machine, the Node Manager must be initialized such that it can accept commands from the Admin Server.
  • The Node Manager is used to migrate the virtual IP address and assign it to the target machine (i.e., invoke ${DOMAIN_HOME}/bin/server_migration/wlsifconfig.sh addif or invoke ${DOMAIN_HOME}/bin/server_migration/wlsifconfig.sh removeif). Note that the default configuration assumes that the machines are similar, i.e.,
    • The netmask associated with the virtual IP is the same on each candidate machine.
    • The network device (interface) name (for example, eth0 on Linux) is the same on each candidate machine.
    • The functional behavior of the platform-specific OS command used to add and remove the virtual IP (for example, ifconfig and arping on Linux) is the same.
  • Migratable servers cannot define any network channels that use a Listen Address different from the virtual IP address associated with the server. If servers must use multiple network channels associated with multiple IP addresses, whole server migration cannot be used as only migration of a single virtual IP address for each migratable server is supported.
  • Server-specific state must be shared through some highly available sharing mechanism, i.e., the default persistent stores where the XA transaction logs are kept must be accessible on each candidate machine.

As mentioned above the Node Manager invokes the script wlsifconfig.sh to run ifconfig and arping commands (more information on these commands can be found here), for example, Read the complete article here.

WebLogic Server 11gR1 Interactive Quick Reference

The WebLogic Server 11gR1 Administration interactive quick reference is a multimedia tool for various terms and concepts used in WebLogic Server architecture. This tool is available for administrators for online or offline use. This is built as a multimedia web page which provides descriptions of WebLogic Server Architectural components, and references to relevant documentation. This tool offers valuable reference information for any complex concept or product in an intuitive and useful manner.

Each interactive type presents data that may be available in the documentation (in the case of Oracle products), but presents it in a way that is more intuitive and useful to a user of Oracle products because it displays data the way it is used in a real world, best practice scenario. For example, the architectural diagram interactive type provides an image of an architectural diagram that is typically larger than a single slide or paper. The image is scrollable and provides zoom capabilities to easily and clearly view any part of the image. The image itself contains a hotspot map that you can click to get more information about a feature, including reference links to the documentation in question. Linking the visual image of the component and where it fits in the overall architecture of the product, or technology in use, to the technical explanation and how-to materials related to that component is something not offered by the documentation. In a future release, the poster will also enable you to drill down even further into the individual subsystems in nested diagrams to look at the details of that subsystem.

In short, the interactive posters are good at showing you the big picture, then quickly and easily getting you to the detailed information you need. In an instant, you can see where a technical component fits into an overall architecture, and zero in on the nitty-gritty details that show you how to do it yourself.
Note: This is a first initial release with more features in development.

Currently known information:

  • Only Firefox 8.0 and higher is known to work with this product. This product may work with Chrome and Safari browsers, but is known to have issues in Internet Explorer at this time.
  • Smartphones, such as iPads and iPhones, are partially supported
