Is it possible to install a Oracle UCM cluster with 2 managed nodes in one physical server.
Please let me know, if you see any problem with below steps:
Install 2 web logic middleware homes in a machine.
Create a web logic domain in first middleware home.
That domain will have 2 ucm managed nodes and one admin server and only one machine.
2 managed nodes and admin server are connected to that only machine.
Pack first domain and unpack it in second middleware home.
Thank you in advance.
In this scenario how are you going to start a second node UCM server when the first is already running ? In your case since this is a cluster set up all the nodes would share the same config.cfg and have same IntradocServerPort . So at any 1 point in time only 1 node would be up and running and the whole purpose of clustering (if it is for HA / Performance ) is defeated .
I think you should first do one step and explain what you want to achieve.
a) it is possible to install two instances of UCM on a single physical server - if you use two domains. If I remember, you will need 2 admin servers, though.
This scenario makes sense if you want to use the same HW e.g. for testing/training/ development purposes. I'd discourage you, however, to pack/unpack domains to migrate environments (maybe this initial copy might be OK, but then environments should use Content Server's migration utilities for config/data/etc.) This is also not a config for a production environment.
b) if your aim is more disaster recovery, I think you won't need two domains, but rather should look into clustering. By the means of Weblogic server you should be able to create either cold-failover (with a single node, capable of self-recovery), or hot-failover (two or more nodes in a cluster, where a failing node can be replaced by others without losing your sessions). Note that hot-failover on a single physical server won't prevent cases when the whole server goes down.
