In my last post, I covered Oracle WebLogic Server and Coherence installation 12c (12.1.3) on Linux in graphical mode.
In this article, I will cover steps required for domain creation for standard installation topology.(Refer my last post)
Step 0: Before starting, lets create an environment file and source it.
Step 1: If you have not chosen to launch the Configuration Wizard as part of the installation, you can do it manually. Follow the screenshots.
While providing Domain Location – do not forget to include Domain Name.
Lets take Basic Weblogic Server Domain template for this article.
It is not recommended to use “All Local Addresses.” On the Administration Server screen, select the drop-down list next to Listen Address and select the IP address on the host where the Administration Server will reside.
Use next screen to select the Node Manager configuration to use for this domain. Whenever you start the Node Manager for a domain it looks for the
nodemanager.properties file in the Node Manager home directory. We are keeping the default option for this article. I will cover Node Manager in separate article.
From this screen, you can add, delete, or clone Managed Servers, and assign a user-expandable server group (if available) to a Managed Server. You can also change the settings for an existing Managed Server.
A cluster is a group of WebLogic Server instances that work together to provide scalability and high-availability for applications. By creating clusters, you can group Managed Servers such that they operate as a single unit for hosting applications and resources.
Use next screen to add or delete clusters. You can also change the settings for an existing cluster.
Use this screen to assign Managed Servers to clusters. Only Managed Servers are displayed in the Server list box. The Administration Server is not listed because it cannot be assigned to a cluster.
Use the Machines screen to create a new machine in the domain. A machine is required in order for the Node Manager to be able to start and stop the servers.
Now, Assign WebLogic Server instances to each of the machines you defined. In our case 1.
Review the detailed configuration settings of your domain before continuing.
Once the Configuration is complete, note the Domain Location and Admin Server URL.
In my next post, I will cover steps to start the Weblogic Server instances and important scripts to know. Stay Tuned.
