Using the WebLogic Admin Console behind a Load-Balancer

The WebLogic Administration Console is one of the primary sources of configuration for WebLogic applications. When operating behind a load-balancer, redirection issues can occur when utilizing the default configuration. To ensure proper operation, the Frontend Host parameter for the AdminServer must be configured. To accomplish this, complete the following steps:

Login to the WebLogic Admin Console and navigate to Environment > Servers

Admin FE 1

Select Lock & Edit

Admin FE 2

Navigate to AdminServer > Protocols > HTTP

Admin FE 3

Enter your Load-Balancer address into the Frontend Host field

Admin FE 4

Save and Activate your changes. No restart required

Admin FE 5

NOTE: The above configuration assumes the Load-Balancer/Web-Server configuration allows access to the WebLogic AdminServer
