Configuration Sumamry

Creating Domain

Step 3.   on linux2 : pack the sample domain using pack.sh

cd $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/common/bin

./pack.sh -managed=true -domain=/u01/admin/sample/aserver/sample -template=sample.jar -template_name=sample

< read domain from “/u01/admin/sample/aserver/sample”
>>  succeed: read domain from “/u01/admin/sample/aserver/sample”
<< set config option Managed to “true”
>>  succeed: set config option Managed to “true”
<< write template to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
……………………………………………………………………………………….
>>  succeed: write template to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
<< close template
>>  succeed: close template

Step 4. on linux2 . unpack the sample domain using unpack.sh

cd $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/common/bin

./unpack.sh -domain=/u01/mserver/sample/sample -template=sample.jar -overwrite_domain=true  -app_dir=u01/mserver/sample/apps
<< read template from “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
>>  succeed: read template from “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
<< set config option OverwriteDomain to “true”
>>  succeed: set config option OverwriteDomain to “true”
<< set config option AppDir to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/u01/mserver/sample/apps”
>>  succeed: set config option AppDir to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/u01/mserver/sample/apps”
<< set config option DomainName to “sample”
>>  succeed: set config option DomainName to “sample”
<< write Domain to “/u01/mserver/sample/sample”
…………………………………………………………………………………..
>>  succeed: write Domain to “/u01/mserver/sample/sample”
<< close template
>>  succeed: close template

Step 5. secure copy  the template sample.jar from linux2 to oracle@linux 3:/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/

Step 6. on linux3. unpack the sample domain using unpack.sh

cd $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/common/bin

./unpack.sh -domain=/u01/mserver/sample/sample  -template=sample.jar -app_dir=u01/mserver/sample/apps

./unpack.sh -domain=/u01/mserver/sample/sample  -template=sample.jar -app_dir=u01/mserver/sample/apps
<< read template from “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
>>  succeed: read template from “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/sample.jar”
<< set config option AppDir to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/u01/mserver/sample/apps”
>>  succeed: set config option AppDir to “/u01/oracle/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/u01/mserver/sample/apps”
<< set config option DomainName to “sample”
>>  succeed: set config option DomainName to “sample”
<< write Domain to “/u01/mserver/sample/sample”
…………………………………………………………………………………..
>>  succeed: write Domain to “/u01/mserver/sample/sample”
<< close template
>>  succeed: close template

Step 7. on linux2 & linux3 start the node manager.

cd $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/server/bin

nohup ./startNodeManager.sh &

Step 8. on linux2. Start the Admin Server

cd /u01/admin/sample/aserver/sample/bin

nohup ./startWebLogic.sh &

Step9  :Access the console of webloigc server http://linux2.com:10001/console and start the Managed Servers


Step 10 . Make sure Node manager on linux3. is reachable


Step 11. Start the Managed Servers on linux2 and linux3.

2.  Point the above managed servers listen address to linux2.com(Local Node).

3. Add there more managed servers WLS_Services2, WLS_Portlet2 & WLS_Spaces2

4. Point the  three created managed servers to linux3.com (Second Node).

1. Create 3 clusters 1. Spaces_ Cluster 2. Services_ Cluster 3. Portlet_Cluster ( These clusters are created to cluster the managed servers created in previous step).

2. Clustering messaging mode : Unicast

Clustering the managed servers.

1. WLS_ Spaces servers are assigned to spaces_cluster.

2. WLS_Services servers are assigned to services_cluseter.

3. WLS_Portlet servers are assigned to Portlet_cluster.

1. Create 2 machines  1. Server1 2. Server2 ( one machine for each physical node).

2. Server1 is assigned to local node.

3. Server2 is assigned to other cluster node.

Admin Servers are managed servers are assigned to their corresponding Machines.

Configuring Webcenter with Proxy HTTP Server and SSO

This Post will deal with configuring Oracle Single Sign on (SSO) with Webcenter suite

Prerequisites

You should have already installed

1. Oracle HTTP server 2.0

2.  Oracle Webcenter Suite 11.1.1.3

3. Oracle SSO 10.1.2 or 10.1.4

Here I installed Oracle HTTP Server on linux2, Webcenter Suite on linux1.

I am going to use below configuration

Ports

Server Name Context
Root
Weblogic
Port
HTTP Server
Port
Admin Server /console, /em 7001 7777
WLS_Spaces /webcenter 8888 7778
WLS_Portlet /richtextportlet, wsrp-tools, portal-tools 8889 7779
WLS_Services /owc_discussions, /owc_wiki 8890 7780

URL’s for accessing Webcenter directly through weblogic server port

Webcenter Spaces http://linux1.com:8888/webcenter
WebCenter Rich Text Portlet http://linux1.com:8889/richtextportlet/
WebCenter WSRP Tools http://linux1.com:8889/wsrp-tools/
WebCenter OmniPortlet and Web Clipping Portlets http://linux1.com:8889/portalTools/
WebCenter Discussions http://linux1.com:8890/owc_discussions
WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server http://linux1.com:8890/owc_wiki
Console http://linux1.com:7001/console

URL’s for accessing Webcenter  through HTTP server port

Webcenter Spaces http://linux2.com:7778/webcenter
WebCenter Rich Text Portlet http://linux2.com:7779/richtextportlet/
WebCenter WSRP Tools http://linux2.com:7779/wsrp-tools/

Step 1. Download and Configure MOD_WEBLOGIC

a. Download MOD_WEBLOGIC from http://download.oracle.com/otn/bea/weblogic/server103/server103_apacheplugins.zip.

b. extract the corresponding platform  mod_wl_20.so. Copy it to $ORACLE_HOME/ohs/modules.

c. Edit $ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/httpd.conf and add the following line under the last LoadModule directive: LoadModule weblogic_module modules/mod_wl_20.so

Step 2. Configuring Webcenter suite with OID.

Check Configure OSSO Identity Asserter section from

Step 3.  Registering HTTP server URL’s  with SSO server.

Ex.

$ORACLE_HOME/sso/bin/ssoreg.sh -oracle_home_path $ORACLE_HOME -site_name linux2.com -config_mod_osso TRUE -mod_osso_url http://linux2.com:7777 -remote_midtier -config_file $ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/osso/console_osso.conf -verbose TRUE

OSSO Configuration
Files
Spaces spaces_osso.conf
Portlet portlet_osso.conf
Services services_osso.conf
Console console_osso.conf

b.  Move the above generated configuration files to the server where HTTP server is running ie linux2 $ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/osso

Step 4.  Build Virtual Host in httpd.conf  located  $ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf

Creating Virtual Host involves 1. Creating Includes files in httpd.conf  2. Adding Weblogic & OSSO directives

I created four Include files . Add below lines in httpd.conf

1. Spaces ———-$ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/wcspaces.conf

2. Portlet———-$ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/wcportlet.conf

3. Services——–$ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/wcservices.conf

4. Console———$ORACLE_HOME/ohs/conf/wcconsole.conf

Sharing the directory between Host and Guest Operating System in VMWork Station

The files between Host and Guest Operating System can be shared by using Add Shared Folder Wizard.

This setup worked for me for Host as Winodws XP & Vista and Guest as linux

1. Create a directory on Host . ( I created directory called shared on Host===C:\shared>)

2. Edit the VM Machine setting and go to options click for add shared folders and share the Host shared folder with Guest.

3. This shared folder appears in /mnt/hgfs on Guest.


Increasing the Heap Size of the Weblogic JVM

There  are 2 different type of servers in Weblogic Server

1. Admin Server

2. Managed Server

Increasing JVM Size of Admin Server

JVM size of Admin server can be increased by changing Xmx and Xms  values in setDomainEnv.sh which is located in $MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/<Domain>/bin

There are two blocks for XMX and XMS in setDomainEnv.sh. Depending up on type of JVM make changes in second block. Below I changed the value of XMX and XMS of 64 Bit SUN Java to 2048 and 1024.

XMS_SUN_64BIT=”256″
export XMS_SUN_64BIT
XMS_SUN_32BIT=”256″
export XMS_SUN_32BIT
XMX_SUN_64BIT=”512″
export XMX_SUN_64BIT
XMX_SUN_32BIT=”512″
export XMX_SUN_32BIT
XMS_JROCKIT_64BIT=”256″
export XMS_JROCKIT_64BIT
XMS_JROCKIT_32BIT=”256″
export XMS_JROCKIT_32BIT
XMX_JROCKIT_64BIT=”512″
export XMX_JROCKIT_64BIT
XMX_JROCKIT_32BIT=”512″
export XMX_JROCKIT_32BIT

XMS_SUN_64BIT=”1024″
export XMS_SUN_64BIT
XMS_SUN_32BIT=”512″
export XMS_SUN_32BIT
XMX_SUN_64BIT=”2048″
export XMX_SUN_64BIT
XMX_SUN_32BIT=”1024″
export XMX_SUN_32BIT
XMS_JROCKIT_64BIT=”512″
export XMS_JROCKIT_64BIT
XMS_JROCKIT_32BIT=”512″
export XMS_JROCKIT_32BIT
XMX_JROCKIT_64BIT=”1024″
export XMX_JROCKIT_64BIT
XMX_JROCKIT_32BIT=”1024″
export XMX_JROCKIT_32BIT
