I'm very new to jboss and still is confused with some concepts. I have setup Jboss clustering (on Jboss 5.1) with 2 nodes on separate servers. How do I tell which node is master and which is slave? The installation procedure is identical. I assume the first node started will be functioning as master node.
Hello Ping, welcome to the forum
you should not care about master/slave node most of the times.
If your configuration and network works correct one of the clustered nodes become the coordinator,
If this node fail another one take its place.
It is easy. You can have a look into the server.log and you find a messages like '.... Members ....' where you can see which nodes are in your cluster.
