    Configuring a host with two servers bound to different IP's

    Bernard Tison Newbie

      hi,

       

      I am trying to configure a host with two servers, each server bound to a different IP address.

      The relevant fragments from domain.xml and host.xml:

       

      domain.xml:

      {code:xml}

      <interfaces>

        <interface name="management"/>

        <interface name="public"/>

      </interfaces>

       

      <server-groups>
        <server-group name="main-server-group" profile="default">
          <socket-binding-group ref="standard-sockets"/>
        </server-group>
      </server-groups>
      {code}

       

      host.xml:

       

      {code:xml}

       

      <interfaces>

        <interface name="management">

          <inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.management:127.0.0.1}"/>

        </interface>

      </interfaces>

       

      <servers>

        <server name="server-one" group="main-server-group">

          <interface name="public">

            <inet-address value="192.168.1.20"/>

          </interface>

        </server>

        <server name="server-two" group="main-server-group">

          <interface name="public">

            <inet-address value="192.168.1.21"/>

          </interface>

        </server>

      </servers>

      {code}

       

      However, when I start up my domain, I got a stack trace saying that the "public" interface is already defined.

       

      [Host Controller] 13:04:46,191 ERROR [org.jboss.as.controller.management-operation] (Controller Boot Thread) JBAS014612: Operation ("add") failed - address: ([

      [Host Controller]     ("host" => "node1"),

      [Host Controller]     ("server-config" => "server-two"),

      [Host Controller]     ("interface" => "public")

      [Host Controller] ]): org.jboss.msc.service.DuplicateServiceException: Service jboss.network.public is already registered

      (remainder of the stacktrace removed)

       

      The only way till now I found to make this setup work is by defining a "public1" and a "public2" interface, and configure these in server-one and server-two respectively.

      However, this requires me to duplicate the socket-binding-group definitions in domain.xml, as the socket-binding-group is bound to an interface, so I need a socket-binding group for interface "public1" and a socket-binding group for interface "public2".

      For two servers this is doable, but become quite tedious if I would need to configure more servers on one box.

       

      Is there another way to achieve this?

       

      Thx
