    Understanding Weblogic12c Failover Mechanism

    Laury

      Hi,

       

      I have a Weblogic12c cluster configured as follow:

       

      1) I have this configuration:

       

      Physical Host A: 192.150.1.101

      Machine: Machine1

      Admin Server, port: AdminServer, 7001

      Managed Server, port: APEX_server1 7002

       

      Physical Host B: 192.150.1.102

      Machine: Machine2

      Admin Server, port: AdminServer, 7001

      Managed Server, port: APEX_server2 7002

       

      Cluster: MyCluster

      Cluster Address; 192.150.1.101:702, 192.150.1.102:7092

       

      2) When the cluster is created:

       

      I can access my application as:

      http://192.150.1.101:7002/my_application

      or:

      http://192.150.1.102:7002/my_application

       

      If server APEX_server1 or 192.150.1.101 gets down, how can I implement an url redirect from http://192.150.1.101:7002/my_application to http://192.150.1.102:7002/my_application?

       

      I understand that:

       

      WebLogic Cluster is primarily for Session Replication and Failover. Meaning when one of the hosting server (Managed Server) in a cluster fails, the user can still finish their transaction without any interruption.

      The WebLogic Cluster propagates the user session across the Cluster members. Does this mean that it happend in the "background" and has nothing to do with accessing the url I tries above?

       

      Thanks by advance for explanations.

       

      Kind Regards.
