Configuring HA for Oracle WebLogic Server Managed Servers by Using the clsetup Wizard

This
post describes the steps to use the clsetup
wizard to configure an Oracle WebLogic Server Managed Servers
instance as a highly available failover data service with Oracle
Solaris Cluster software.

HA
Prerequisites

  • The

    logical host resource to be used by the data service is configured.

  • The

    administration server instance of Oracle WebLogic Server software is

    running. This is to avoid the delay during discovery of the managed

    servers, which might take 10 minutes or longer.

  • The

    common agent container (cacao) service is running on the nodes on

    which Oracle WebLogic Server software will be configured.

Application
Prerequisites

  • The

    boot.properties

    file is in the $DOMAIN_DIR/servers/<server-name>/security

    folder.

  • The

    Managed Server to be configured is created.

Points to
Note

While
using the clsetup
wizard:

  • Type

    a question mark (?) to access the help.

  • Type

    a left angle bracket (<) or a right angle bracket (>) to move

    backward or forward, respectively.

  • Each

    input provided is validated by the wizard.

Procedure

From
a command prompt, type clsetup
to start the utility. From the clsetup
menu, select "Data Services". In the next menu, select
“Oracle WebLogic Server”.
