Change JMS server targets

After you create a JMS server, you can retarget it to a different independent WebLogic Server instance, cluster, or migratable target server.

To retarget your JMS server:

  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, cluster, 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 is specified, the JMS server will not boot.
    • Best practice is to target a dynamic cluster for high availability. Requires a custom persistent store targets the same cluster. Use a store with Distribution Policy of Singleton to host stand-alone (non-distributred) destintions. Use a store with Distribution Policy of Distributed to host distributed destinations.
    • 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.
    • A dynamic cluster, a custom persistent store must target the same dynamic cluster or the default store available on each dynamic cluster member.
  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.
