SOA 11g cluster in active active mode

I'm trying to setup SOA 11g (on WebLogic server) cluster in an Active Active mode (2 hosts, 1 Vhost)

I understand Weblogic Admin Server will be running in Active Passive mode (only one instance at any given time)...is that true?

How will the Admin Server failover would work? (If one goes down, how the 2nd admin server running on 2nd host will startup automatically?

Any documents/url/steps on SOA 11g for Active Active configuration?

any help that would make me understand/configure SOA11g in active active...would be a great help

Thanks in advance

If the admin server goes down then you will have to start the second admin server manually, using the configuration xml file of the first admin server. But the managed servers can function without the admin server as well.

thanks girionis,

Yes, thats my understanding as well (manual start)...Is this the way OOTB Active Passive implemented? is there a way to automate this OOTB manual start? how in real world "Admin server" is managed?
The active/active or active/passive refers to managed servers, not to admin server. I never heard of automatic admin server failover in WebLogic, so I am not sure how you can do it automatically. Why do you want to automatically start another admin server if one fails? Is there any reason behind this? The managed servers will function without the admin server anyway.

starting Admin server automatically is not a requirement. I'm just trying to automate...if there is a way :)

Looks like manual...is the standard way of starting it.
