    Clustering on two different machine(Jboss 3.2.3)

    gugusamchil Newbie

      I want to clustering on two different machines (it is called S1,S2)

      on S1, The following file is corrected.
      1. cluster-service.xml modified
      2. farm-service.xml modified
      Similarly S2 is corrected.

      and JBOSS was started(S1,S2) and the screen which inputted http://localhost:8080 by the browser appears perfectly.
      s1 is dropped and http://localhost:8080 is inputted by the browser once again.
      But a screen does not look right.

      Since the cluster was carried out to S2 even if S1 falls, I thought that a screen looked right.

      Was my idea wrong?

      on S1 of log

          I am shashidhara, new to clustering concept.
          can you help me .

          I am making use of jboss3.2.3 on two servers (s1 and s2)
          and deployed application on both servers , servers are identiying in cluster mode.
          I only included True tag in jboss.xml,
          I don't no what to configure in cluster-service.xml , please kindly help me urgent


          * Need to configure all servers IP address in cluster-service.xml
          * How request transfer to another server
          Ex: This is url
          This ip address is configured to some IPaddress, if that machine itsself down
          how request goes to another server.

          please provide answer for these doubts.

            Hi shashidhara,

            >I don't no what to configure in cluster-service.xml , please kindly help me urgent

            >* Need to configure all servers IP address in cluster-service.xml

            As far as I know, the only thing you should configure in cluster-service.xml is the multicast IP address the jboss servers should use to communicate each other.

            >* How request transfer to another server

            You should use a web server as a front-end (I use apache) with module mod_jk. This module allows you to load-balance request to your N jboss servers.
            If one of the jboss servers falls, mod_jk will redirect all requests to the one that's still alive.

            If the server where Apache is running dies, you won't be able to access your application (unless you access directly to the other server with the tomcat port). I suppose you could run apache on both servers and use some kind of rotatory DNS service (I'm not sure that's possible, I'm just guessing) in order to redirect the requests to ' http://www.help.com' to any of the two apache servers.

            I'm not an expert in jboss, in fact I'm also hoping someone can help me with my last post, but I hope that helps.

              Sub: probelms to implment jboss clustering

              We have been trying to implement Jboss clustering on two machines.we got only progress those two nodes are appearing in clustering. Two nodes are in Default Partition. we did not change any in jboss cluster-service.xml file.

              Changes made for configuration

              1.farm-service.xml in server/all/deploy
              2.For EJBs execution we made "clustered true" in ejb-jar.xml.

              Errors Identified :

              1. we tried to exceute from one node ,the client & jar files which are deployed in the
              second(second node shutdown) but it was giving me error as JNDI name not bound.
              We thought this one we r not getting HotDeployment.
              2.we tried with
              in all/sever/conf/jndi.properties file at this one we got Communication Exception
              i.e node1:1100 is not connected & node2:1100 is not connected

              3. In the client
              p.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, ""); at this point we got
              javax.naming.CommunicationException: Receive timed out. Root exception is
              at java.net.PlainDatagramSocketImpl.receive(Native Method)
              at java.net.DatagramSocket.receive(DatagramSocket.java:629)
              at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.discoverServer(NamingContext.java:1093)
              at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.checkRef(NamingContext.java:1223)
              at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:514)
              at org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContext.lookup(NamingContext.java:507)
              at javax.naming.InitialContext.lookup(InitialContext.java:350)
              at ejb.HelloWorldClient.main(HelloWorldClient.java:31)
              Exception: Receive timed out

              We Supposed to put localhost:1100 or 1099 it is excuting in that particular node.

              Kindly inform me what r the chnages required to configure two systems.
              if you have any expmple code snipets forward to me.
              which is the best documentation for Jboss clustering?
              if we done any mistakes you will notice to me.

              Thanks &Regards

                1) NEVER change all/sever/conf/jndi.properties
                2) can you test a telnet on port 1100 to check if it works?
                3) are you sure you run the all config i.e. "run -c all"

                  hi slaboure
                  thank you for your reply.

                  i have tesed >telnet 1100
                  result is : Connecting To 1100... Could not open a connection to host on port 23 : Connect failed.

                  I have been running my both jboss servers always with
                  run -c all

                  is there any modifications inform me ?

                      hi Bela
                      i have tested with telnet localhost 1100
                      then iam getting this message. we are using windows 2000 for both jboss & clinent.
                      we got this one at our two severs are running on different nodes ,those ip addresses are from this i tested telnet and another ine
                      kindly give me procedure to solve this problem.

                        I am doing exactly the same test , and have the same problems, except:
                        The problems do only on high load (creating with 30 threads at the same time InitialContext's).
                        When I do it with one or two threads, no problem at all!

                        Did you find a solution already?
