Change JMS server targets

After you create a JMS server, you can retarget it to a different independent WebLogic Server instance or migratable target server. Migratable targets define a set of WebLogic Server instances in a cluster that can potentially host a pinned service, such as a JMS server. A recommended best practice is to target the JMS server to a migratable target, so that a member server will not be a single point of failure. A JMS server can also be automatically migrated from an unhealthy server instance to a healthy server instance, with the help of the server health monitoring services.

To retarget your JMS server to a different server instance or migratable target:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the Administration Console, expand Services > JMS and select Servers.
  3. On the Summary of JMS Servers page, click the JMS server that you want to target.
  4. Click the Target and Deploy tab.
  5. Use Target to select the server target or migratable target where you want to deploy the JMS server.
    • When a target WebLogic Server boots, the JMS server boots as well. If no target WebLogic Server is specified, the JMS server will not boot.
    • When a migratable target server boots, the JMS server boots as well on the user-preferred server in the cluster. However, a JMS server and all of its destinations can migrate to another server within the cluster in response to a server failure or due to a scheduled migration for system maintenance.

    When a JMS server is targeted to a migratable target, it cannot use the default store, so a custom store must be configured and targeted to the same migratable target. For more information on configuring a migratable target for JMS servers, see Configure migratable targets for JMS-related services.

  6. Click Save.
  7. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).

After you finish

If you change a JMS server target, you must stop and restart WebLogic Server.
