Sun Cluster Data Service for WebLogic Server Guide for Solaris OS

START Method

Before starting the BEA WebLogic Server that is configured in the resource, the BEA WebLogic Server configuration and the resource extension properties are validated. If the db_probe_script extension property is set, the database is probed by running the script that is set in the extension property. If the database is up, the BEA WebLogic Server is started by running the START script that is configured in the extension property Start_script under pmf. If the database is not up, the START method returns success and lets the probe method handle the starting of the BEA WebLogic Server. The probe method waits until the database is up to start the BEA WebLogic Server, as explained in Probing Algorithm and Functionality.

After starting the START script under pmf, the START method waits until the BEA WebLogic Server is in RUNNING mode before declaring the START method successful. While waiting for the BEA WebLogic Server to start, the probe method tries to connect to the server to check if it is up. Some messages are displayed on the console during startup. The message “Failed to connect to host logical-host-1 and port 7001: Connection refused” will continue to be displayed until the BEA WebLogic Server starts completely. After the BEA WebLogic Server is in the RUNNING mode, the START method sets the status to “Started Successfully.”

BEA WebLogic Server console messages are stored at /var/cluster/logs/hawls/wls-resource-name on the cluster node where the resource is started. You can check this log file for startup messages of BEA WebLogic Server instances.
