Overview

This resource allows you to manage machine in an WebLogic domain.

Here is an example on how you should use this:

wls_machine { 'test2':
  ensure        => 'present',
  listenaddress => '10.10.10.10',
  listenport    => '5556',
  machinetype   => 'UnixMachine',
  nmtype        => 'SSL',
}

In this example you are managing a machine in the default domain. When you want to manage a machine in a specific domain, you can use:

wls_machine { 'my_domain/test2':
  ensure        => 'present',
  listenaddress => '10.10.10.10',
  listenport    => '5556',
  machinetype   => 'UnixMachine',
  nmtype        => 'SSL',
}

domain

With this parameter, you identify the domain, where your objects is in.

The domain name is part of the full qualified name of any WebLogic object on a system. Let’s say we want to describe a WebLogic server. The full qualified name is:

wls_server{'domain_name/server_name':
  ensure => present,
  ...
}

When you don’t specify a domain name, Puppet will use default as domain name. For every domain you want to manage, you’ll have to put a wls_settings in your manifest.

notes

Optional information that you can include to describe this configuration. WebLogic Server saves this note in the domain’s configuration file (config.xml) as XML PCDATA. All left angle brackets (<) are converted to the XML entity &lt;. Carriage returns/line feeds are preserved. <dl> <dt>Note:</dt> <dd> If you create or edit a note from the Administration Console, the Administration Console does not preserve carriage returns/line feeds. </dd> </dl>

password

The password used by a Node Manager client to connect to the underlying service to which the Node Manager client delegates operations. When you get the value of this attribute, WebLogic Server does the following: <ol> <li>Retrieves the value of the PasswordEncrypted attribute.</li> <li>Decrypts the value and returns the unencrypted password as a String.</li> </ol> When you set the value of this attribute, WebLogic Server does the following: <ol> <li>Encrypts the value.</li> <li>Sets the value of the PasswordEncrypted attribute to the encrypted value.</li> </ol> Caution: Using the (Password) attribute is a potential security risk because the String object (which contains the unencrypted password), remains in the JVM’s memory until garbage collection removes it and the memory is reallocated. Depending on how memory is allocated in the JVM, a significant amount of time could pass before this unencrypted data is removed from memory. Therefore, you should use the PasswordEncrypted() attribute instead.

An example on how to use this:

wls_machine {a_wls_machine :
   ...
   password => 'a_value'
   ...
}

This is an extended property. Before you can use it add it to the wls_settings property extra_properties.

timeout

Timeout for applying a resource.

To be sure no Puppet operation, hangs a Puppet daemon, all operations have a timeout. When this timeout expires, Puppet will abort the current operation and signal an error in the Puppet run.

With this parameter, you can specify the length of the timeout. The value is specified in seconds. In this example, the timeout is set to 600 seconds.
