    Fail-Over problem

    Tahir Hussain Newbie

      Hi All,
      We have been facing problem related to Fail-over
      Let me explain u the setup and the scenario once again.

      We have three JBoss nodes all clustered to same partition (all on different m/c).
      On each of these nodes we have deployed all our EJB (Stateless and Entity Beans).
      We are using Tomcat 4.0.3 as our webserver which is also on a differnt m/c.

      Initially we have all the JBoss nodes and Tomcat running.
      Our observation is that load-balancing is taking place.
      Now if we pull down one of the JBoss node, the already running nodes are taking up the load.

      The problem arises when one of the nodes is processing the request and at the same instance we pull down the node.
      What we feel is that as the JBoss node has failed to deliver the response, the request should have been routed to another JBoss node. This is not happening and exception is reported at the Tomcat server.

      Does we need to make any configuration on Tomcat server or JBoss server in order to resolve the problem

      The stacktrace of the exception is on Tomcat is:
