Using Microsoft Network Load Balancing for Livecycle ES 2/2.5 with JBoss clustering?

Jun 26, 2011 9:24 PM

Hi,

 

Has anyone tried using Microsoft NLB for Livecycle with JBoss clustering and get it working? Able to login to livecycle's admin ui page with the NLB IP

 

My enviroment:

- 2 jboss application server (different IP address)

- Horizontal clustered

- LC ES2 installed on both servers

 

 

For those who setup successfully, hope you can share your experience.

 

Thank you.

    Lionel, are you having a specific problem getting your configuration to work, or are you just looking for others using this combination?

    Hi Lionel,

     

    I'm doing the same configuration but still haven't finished.

     

    When installing, did you choose the "Partial turnkey (separated DB)" or "LiveCycle Only" and using the pre-configurated JBoss ?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Lionel,

     

    Actually I find the documentation a bit confusing. I'm trying to perform some tests and for that I have 2 Virtual machine (VMWare) and the windows NLB configured for those 2. But in the same LC documentation it says to run the installer normaly and proceed to configuration manager, whereas in another section says that we need to copy the pre-configured JBoss and do the configuration manually.

     

    So, which should I follow? I just need to install Rights Management service.

     

    Cheers!

    Hi Lionel,

     

    Yes, I'm following that documentation. In this case, are you pointing the 2 app servers to the same database?

    Thanks!

     

    Just a few more questions...hehehe

     

    In the document: Configuring LiveCycle ES2 Application Server Clusters Using JBoss.

     

    Page 35 item 3.4. Have you had to configure the Caching Locators? If yes, where did you put them, in only one machine or in all of the nodes?

     

    On page 29, iten 2.7 (Testing the JBoss Application Server cluster) says that for testing we can run the command specifying the server, in my case is:

    run.bat -c lc_sqlserver_cl -b <ipAddress>

     

    But in the Appendix C: Configuring JBoss as a Windows Service, it says: call run.bat -c all -b <ipAddress>

     

    So when should I start JBoss with "lc_sqlserver_cl" or "all" ?

    Hey, just to let you know, I've got some problems with the Locators, and then I followed this article:

    http://blogs.adobe.com/livecycle/2011/07/how-to-ensure-that-tcp-locato rs-are-using-correct-version-of-gemfire-used-by-livecycle-es2-cluster. html

     

    Let me know if you get succeed.

    Oh yes, I didn't mention that mine is working fine too. The locators are running and the 2 nodes are seeing each other.

     

    But how did you get the MS NLB working? I can't get access to LC through NLB IP address. Did you have to include the NLB ip in somewhere in JBoss?

     

    I suppose that as the MS NLB is already configured, once we follow the configuration (guide below) it's just a matter to turn on both nodes and should work, right? And also since the NLB is set up, we don't need to set up nothing on JBoss - e.g. section 6 of the guide below.

    http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/clustering_jboss.pdf

     

    Is that correct?

     

    Thanks!

    Yes, I got mine working after I changed to bind all address no the computer.

     

    Go to page 30, the note in the top:

    "When you start JBoss Application Server 4.2.0, to bind all addresses on the computer (including the localhost) you can specify -b 0.0.0.0 instead of the IP address of host name".

     

    So I did this and now it's working.

     

    I followed this thread: http://community.jboss.org/message/215486

     

    I hope it helps.

     

    Diego

    Hey!

     

    I guess I missed this one, what is NICs ?

     

    I didn't set up the NLB but it's defined as multicast

    Oh, nice!

     

    yeah, it's 1 card per server. Actually it's this 2 servers running with NLB.

     

    That's good!

     

    Cheers
