I have 2 servers (A and B) with 4 Weblogic applications installed on them. The Apps 1 & 2 are installed on server A and apps 3 & 4 are installed on server B. The Weblogic admin server is setup on server A. I have observed that the config.xml on server A contains all the app configurations installed on server A and B. My question is is there any config file or copy on this config file stored on server B. I have read that if incase there is a failure on server A then the apps on server B will still function using the config file which is already being cached. If this senario is true then where is this config file is cached. Thank you.
Hi, You should have a file called config.xml in your domain folder. shekar

I found the config.xml under my domain on server A. However my question is about the config file on server B. i.e is there a copy of config.xml file is stored on server B (even temporally) where my second app instance is installed. This way the second instance on the sever B can be started incase the admin sever failure.
the main config file is config.xml which both servers A & B use. There is no temporary file stored in B. It reads the config.xml also.
There should be another config file called msi-config.xml which the servers use when admin server fails. If you donot find this file, then your servers are not configured to run independently in absence of admin server.
When admin fails, both of these servers use msi-config.xml file and update all changes in it. Once the admin server comes up, both the config files are synchronized and all latest changes are updated in config.xml. After that both of the servers start using config.xml
