Create Oracle WebCenter Content domain

Contents

Run the create domain script

Run the create domain script, specifying your inputs file and an output directory to store the generated artifacts:

$ cd ${WORKDIR}/weblogic-kubernetes-operator/kubernetes/samples/scripts/create-wcc-domain/domain-home-on-pv/

$ ./create-domain.sh \
  -i create-domain-inputs.yaml \
  -o <path to output-directory>

The script will perform the following steps:

  • Create a directory for the generated Kubernetes YAML files for this domain if it does not already exist. The path name is <path to output-directory>/weblogic-domains/<domainUID>. If the directory already exists, its contents must be removed before using this script.

  • Create a Kubernetes job that will start up a utility Oracle WebCenter Content container and run offline WLST scripts to create the domain on the shared storage.

  • Run and wait for the job to finish.

  • Create a Kubernetes domain YAML file, domain.yaml, in the “output” directory that was created above. This YAML file can be used to create the Kubernetes resource using the kubectl create -f or kubectl apply -f command.

  • Run oke-start-managed-server-wrapper.sh script, which intrenally applies the domain YAML. This script also applies initial configurations for Managed Server containers and readies Managed Servers for future inter-container communications.

    $ cd ${WORKDIR}/weblogic-kubernetes-operator/kubernetes/samples/scripts/create-wcc-domain/domain-home-on-pv/
    
    $ ./oke-start-managed-servers-wrapper.sh -o <path_to_output_directory> -l <load_balancer_external_ip> -p <load_balancer_port>
    

Verify the results

The create domain script will verify that the domain was created, and will report failure if there was any error. However, it may be desirable to manually verify the domain, even if just to gain familiarity with the various Kubernetes objects that were created by the script.

Generated YAML files with the default inputs
Click here to see sample content of the generated `domain.yaml`.

Verify the domain

To confirm that the domain was created, enter the following command:

$ kubectl describe domain DOMAINUID -n NAMESPACE

Replace DOMAINUID with the domainUID and NAMESPACE with the actual namespace.

In the Status section of the output, the available servers and clusters are listed. Note that if this command is issued soon after the script finishes, there may be no servers available yet, or perhaps only the Administration Server but no Managed Servers. The WebLogic Kubernetes Operator will start up the Administration Server first and wait for it to become ready before starting the Managed Servers.

Verify the pods

Enter the following command to see the pods running the servers:

$ kubectl get pods -n NAMESPACE

Here is an example of the output of this command. You can verify that an Administration Server and Managed Servers for ucm and ibr cluster are running.

$ kubectl get pod -n wccns

Verify the services

Enter the following command to see the services for the domain:

$ kubectl get services -n NAMESPACE

Here is an example of the output of this command.

Expose service for IBR intradoc port

  1. Get the IP address for the node, hosting ibr managed server pod. In this sample, node running wccinfra-ibr-server1 pod has ip ‘10.0.10.xx’
    $ kubectl get pods -n wccns -o wide
