If I need to start the admin server in a different box?

Hi,
Just wanted to know if I have a group of servers running on few boxes and one of the boxes runs admin server, then If that box crashes then
can I start the admin server in a different box?
If I can start then the listen address for the admin server would be different since it is in a different box.
So how would the managed server would come to know about the new location of admin server (thru discovery)?
I kind of know the answer but just wanted to confirm it.
Also, when I start the admin server in a new box then do I need to change the configuration for the admin server as now the admin server is listening at the new IP address?

Thanks

Deepak

You can replace a failed Administration Server with a backup WebLogic Server instance that can assume the role of Administration Server.
You'll find more infomation at:
