    Query on Cluster behavior when multicast doesn't work.....


      Hi Everyone,


      I have a customer who has configured 4 managed servers and configured all servers to be part of Cluster and chosen Multicast option as Messaging type.


      Customer has some network issues in his environment, and found multicast test fails.. The network fragments doesn't reach some of the members of the cluster due to the network issue.


      However all the servers in the cluster have got synchronized successfully and joined cluster..


      Customer is worried that the cluster heart beats would be missed due to the network issue, however weblogic has not reported any incident in the logs , even after enabling the cluster debug flags, the behavior is still the same.


      Could you please let me know if it is right behavior?


      Does a cluster not fail if multicast  doesn't work in the weblogic environment ?


      Thanks in Advance,
