Application Servers

An application server is a software framework that provides both facilities to create applications and a server environment to run them. Most application server frameworks contain a comprehensive service layer model, acting as a set of components accessible to the software developer through an API defined by the platform itself. For Web applications, these components are usually performed in the same running environment as their web server(s), and their main job is to support the construction of dynamic pages. However, many application servers target much more than just Web page generation: they implement services like clustering, fail-over, and load-balancing.

Hi, I have Windows Fail Over  Cluster configured as below in VMware vSAN environment:

Production Network: 192.168.50.0/24

Cluster Heartbeat Newark: 10.1.1.0/24 (Communication only between two cluster nodes, no gateway, DNS specified, only IP and mask)

vSAN iSCSI shared storage network: 172.31.10.0/24  (Communication only between vSAN and Windows iSCSI initiator, no gateway, DNS specified, only IP and mask)

Windows cluster is configured, and the cluster test is passing. I can restart the servers and cluster switching is working fine.

The problem is, that we have an application, which is supposed to bind to the Production network (usually it does it automatically), where it can communicate with other servers in the network, however, it always binds to Heartbeat network. How to get the nic priority level sorted. I followed the steps in the below link, but no luck.

HI

I'd like to create Hornet clustering in JBoss EAP 6.4, I have the following env:
  • domain mode, two nodes

I need to create hornet clustering in Collocated topology cross two nodes. each node has active and backup hornet messaging.
node-1: live, backup (for node 2)
node -2: live, backup (for node 1)

I have searched online,
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_jboss_enterprise_application_platform/6.4/html/administration_and_configuration_guide/sect-high_availability

There is no example for Collocated topology with domain mode.

Anyone can share the instruction would be appreciated.

Cheers

Dear experts

Our company would like to setup open source OT management system that allows us to do following:

1. When employ wants to do OT, Start time must be submitted first and then it will only be reflected to system once administrator approved.
2. Later when employee finish job, he or she can set the end time, and there should be something that allows emplyee to upload service report that contains start and end time signed by our customers.
3. After setting end time, it should show total OT - hours and we should be able to generate monthly OT for each employee.

Plz advise something that is opensource or even if need to pay, it should be something not very expensive.

Hi,

We have Ahsay Offsite Backup Server v6 installed on our Windows 2003 server and use this to backup data for our users.

We are no longer backing up data for some of our users and wish to remove their licenses from our Ahsay backup.

What is the best way to disconnect a user and remove their user license from our Ahsay backup?

Thanks,
Robbie

Are the following Application Servers Cloud Native?

1. Websphere Liberty

I mean without their native(IBM/Red Hat) Cloud offering, whether these two could be
considered similar to Node.js/Cloud Native?

MacOS Sierra plug-in configuration a qualified success.  However, I have no CFB perspective.
Install log says:
Installation: Successful with errors.

Non fatal errors being two occurrences of

Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
 
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

how to configure SSL for JBOSS EAP 7.1 in domain.xml

I am in the process of getting an outdated server upgraded to a supported OS. Running VMWare 5.5 and we get getting a system off a Virtual Server 2003 x86, and upgrading it to the only available system possible a virtual Server 2008 x86. The original server is an application and file server. It has 3 IP addresses assigned to a single nick and the DNS has 2 of those IP's assigned to static FQDN's.
Here is where things get unusual...

When the original server is the one bound to the domain I can ping it from all of my systems. When the new computer is bound to the domain it will not respond to ping from only certain subdomains (inbound ICMP v4 & v6 are enabled for file and print sharing.. so it isn't the firewall).

The 2nd and 3rd IP's do not respond to any type of ping even though they show they are connected to the network. I have even tried changing the configuration by removing the 2nd and 3rd IP's from the one nic and giving them their own individual nic cards to see if they might respond from there. Again no such luck.

I am going crazy trying to get this to work properly but I can't seem to find a way to get the nic's to talk correctly, nor can I get them to respond to all of the subdomains that the original server had no issues responding to.

I am hoping that someone may have seen something like this before. I realize that an in place upgrade doesn't always resolve all issues but I've never seen something like this in any previous attempts.
Thank you in …

The CompTIA Cloud+ Basic training course will teach you about cloud concepts and models, data storage, networking, and network infrastructure.

we have direct printing with two application servers running IIS connecting to  SQL DB . we have upgraded two application servers  3 months back and one application is not responding for direct printing .
our application vendor is asking us to check with the network team to resolve the issue  . but it seems to be nothing wrong with the network level .

Q1  - How can I confirm the network level issue is  clear - Eg by ping the client to server or  ?
Q2 -  Patch level , there are some changes in the patch level  , but our vendor has confirm before the patch upgrade ,there is nor issue with the latest patch update .

Our Printing is configured as below
Client end  - connecting the receipt printer to client PC  - Host name  - C1
Application server side  -   Direct printer is mapping    billingPrinterC1 and billingPrinter is the  prefix for the printer profile name for billing Dep.

billingPrinterC1   IPaddress

how can I rectify the direct printing issue on the not responding server .  Direct printing still using for big applications ? we are having so much of issues with this architecture . please comment on this
 I will share some testing result later

Cloud based application having issues with ldaps bind to our Domain Controller in DMZ.
The application vendor is seeing the follwoing log entries on their side:
           [7:Public User][1024:application notice][R] (:) - Unable to bind to the LDAP server.

Based on this they have taken a wireshark capture and seen the following sequence of packets:-
Source -> destination (DC)   TCP    49662->636 [ACK] Seq=805 Ack=12910
Source -> destination (DC)   TLSv1  Application data
Source -> destination (DC)   TLSv1  Encrypted Alert
Source -> destination (DC)   TCP    49662->636 [FIN, ACK] Seq=927 Ack=12910
destination (DC) -> Source   TCP    636->49662 [ACK] Seq=12910 Ack=928
destination (DC) -> Source   TCP    636->49662 [RST,ACK] Seq=12910 Ack=928

They are saying that the reason packet analyser highlights the [RST, ACT] packets in red is because after the connection closure by Cloud Application server (source) [FIN, ACK] , server is expecting a final [FIN, ACK] from Domain Controller  (destination) but [RST, ACK] arrives instead. And thus they believe that it could be a issue with the Domain Controller.

Is this claim correct?
What can we do to troubleshoot this further?

We are looking to replace our current SAP systems with a new one.  We were thinking of pointing using a friendly URL to point to the database such as  prodcutionSQLDB.ACME.com  and  productionOracleDB.ACME.com instead of using DB Server name.

This way our application servers just get this FQDN to point to the database.  THis would simplify our DR planning and future migrations.

The question is, does SAP require certificates or something similar where the application servers would not be able to communicate with the DB  (SQL or Oracle).  My understanding is SQL and Oracle use username\pass to authenticate,  or does SAP rely on certificates to communicate with the DB servers?

But when I entered the right SharePoint Server key, I got error, that the key is not valid Project Server 2010 key.
Is it correct? Should I really enter Project Server key?

We are still using Tomcat 6.0 and plan to move to latest version by next year. Problem with current version is to set the access deny to our web-application.

I tried adding valve with webapps/META-INF/context.xml file as below but nothing works. Can you please provide a fix.

<Context antiJARLocking="true" path="/">
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve" />
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="{IP_address}" />
</Context>

Or

</Context>

We're running a XA 6.5 environment, and I've just built a series of new VMs and added them to the existing farm.

I am able to see the new servers within the farm and have verified that the application servers are all same version (6.5), same OS Win2k8R2, same Hotfix XA650W2K8R2X64R03.  However the XML brokers (we have 3) are R04.  My first guess would be to verify that all the Hotfix packs were the same, however, when I try and launch applications from the old farm (R03), everything works normally with the XML brokers (R04).  I don't want to convert the XML brokers (R04) to a different hotfix pack (R03) and break the old production environment.  So why can't the new servers work with the XML brokers?

I have verified that the new application servers have R03 just the same as the old farm, however I am unable to publish applications from any of the new servers.

When I attempt to launch an application from one of the new servers, I see the following error messages in the WI:

1. An error occurred while attempting to read information from the Citrix servers: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
