    running two clusters on the same network

    Eric Newbie

      Hi,

      I'm trying to run two clusters (development / production) on the same network. I've read several suggestions in the forums indicating that I need to change the multi-cast address in cluster-service.xml, ie:

      <UDP mcast_addr="228.1.2.3" mcast_port="45566"... to
      <UDP mcast_addr="...something else..." ...

      this seems easy enough. I was just wondering, is there a way to tell JBoss to grab the value from a System property? I'd like to launch JBoss with, say -Dmcast_addr=... as it would make distinguishing between partitions much easier.



      On a related and probably easier note, how do the clients differentiate between the clusters? There's no cluster-service.xml in the client of course, so how do they know which one to use?

      Thanks for any help you can offer.

      Sincerely,
      Eric
