Candidate Machines are not Used for Migration

(Doc ID 1487593.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If a server fails and it is enabled for automatic migration, Node Manager automatically restarts it. By default, Node Manager restarts the server on the candidate machines that the cluster specifies, in order of preference that we configured in the cluster. To change the default, we set server's list of candidate machines to create a subset of cluster-wide candidates in order of preference. But actually a random candidate server is selected from candidate machines that are defined in server and cluster mbean. Order of preference is not applied.
