Currently have two weblogic servers on seperate nodes (one weblogic domain per node and one server per domain) managed by a hardware loadbalancer; both running the same site. i am looking to add another site to each node. both sites would be sharing the same external ip but different dns names.
what is the best approach to configure the new site?
1) should i add the site as a different weblogic server but under the weblogic domain for that physical node. Then setup 2 virtual host point to each server based on the dns name.
2) should i create new weblogic server in a new domain (so basically two weblogic domains per physical node). however i am not sure if virtual host concept applys to domains
If I were in place of you, I would go with option 2 i.e creating a Weblogic server under the same domain and adding all the servers in a cluster. In this way you would be able to achieve the clustering benefits that Weblogic offers apart from the external load balance that you have.
