This procedure is based on the configuration that is described in Simple Configuration. If you are planning a different configuration, you must configure the BEA WebLogic Server accordingly.
Follow the BEA WebLogic Server documentation to install the BEA WebLogic Server on the global file system or a failover file system.
Follow the BEA WebLogic Server Administration Guide to configure the WebLogic Domain.
Type the logical hostname or its IP address when configuring the BEA WebLogic Servers.
After completing all necessary configuration for the domain, shut down the Administration Server.
Edit the Administration Server START script and the Managed Server START script by setting the WLS_USER and WLS_PW.
The START scripts should be able to run without any arguments.
To perform a smooth shutdown of the BEA WebLogic Server, the boot.properties file with a valid user name and password is required. You do not need to set the WLS_USER and WLS_PW variables for a smooth shutdown if the boot.properties file is available. This waiver applies only to BEA WebLogic Server 8.1 or later versions.
In the Managed Server START script, set the ADMIN_URL and the SERVER_NAME variables.
This script should be able to run without any arguments.
Set the necessary environment variables in the setWLSEnv.sh or the startWLS.sh scripts.
These environment variables include any additional CLASSPATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH, etc. These scripts contain all necessary environmental variables such as CLASSPATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Verify that the config.xml file is in the same directory as the START scripts.
