I want to have 2 managed server instaces running on 2 different machine.

Design goes like this way

Machine 1 : Admin + Managed server
Machine 2 :Managed server

Togather they form a cluster and want to use nodemanager concept to start the managed server 2 from admin console.

I am creating domain on Machine 1 .Do i need to create a domain on Machine 2 also???

How should i proceed for this design?

Weblogic version is 9.2MP3

You add the machines / domains as necessary in both servers and start them up. You should also let node manager know that they belong to the same cluster by mentioning their IP.

Well, yes you need to create a replica of your other server in the managed server. Go through the weblogic domain wizard to set the servers up and then login to the admin server. From the admin console you should be able to see the list of managed servers that you have installed and you should also be able to start , stop them as needed. If there is any specific step you are having trouble with, let us know

If we have to create a replica of admin server domain on managed server machine,then what is the meaning of single domain ?

That means we are having 2 domains ???

a replica of admin server domain


I am not sure I understand what you mean by "admin server domain". There is only one admin server. The admin server can control the managed servers

Ya ,i understand that admin server can control the managed server.But as you said "you need to create a replica of your other server in the managed server" ,then what does it mean.

What i understand is ,we have to create same domain directory structure on Machine2 as that of managed server on Machine1 .
I am right ???

Yep. And when you deploy the app you will target both servers in the cluster so that you can deploy them homogeneously.

To use nodemanager you will need to start nodemanager in both hardwares and than create a "Machine" connected to nodemanagers than you will be able to use admin console to control servers.
