You can have as many metadata models as you like, and each server can have its own set of models, which may not be identical. BUT: If you are using Alfresco Enterprise and creating a cluster out of multiple servers, you really should keep the models in-sync across all the servers, as otherwise there may be inconsistencies in behaviour or even non-working features due to lack of the model for a specific node being accessed.
Hi Axel, thank you for your answer, at least i know that it is possible.
I have an alfresco domain on weblogic, but the managed servers are not in cluster, and i am trying to configure them to use different metadata models, but i didn't get that far yet, i only found the documentation how to install on a domain.
I also thought about other options, like:
-installing multiple alfresco domains on the same server or
but i'm not sure what would be the best option. i'm a beginner with alfresco...
You typically have one database and one content store per server. The number / amount of metadata models you have in a particular server does not have an impact on the number of content stores / databases. You can set up a server with more than one content stores and have rules / conditions on which content store will be used to store files, but that is a rather advanced configuration option.
You do know that the latest versions of Alfresco are no longer supported for deployment on WebLogic? You can do it of course, but any adaptions / configuration changes you might have to do to get it working, you'll have to come up with yourself.
