To create a new enterprise server

You can only create enterprise server instances on your local machine.

  1. Right-click anywhere in the Server Explorer view and select New > Other > Micro Focus COBOL > Enterprise Server.
  2. Enter a name in the Name field.
  3. Check the 64-bit check box if you need to create a 64-bit server.
  4. Click Browse to the right of the Template field, then navigate to the folder that stores the enterprise server template XML files.
    By default, this is the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\etc\ServerTemplates folder. The templates supplied in this folder are the basis for enterprise servers, with the appropriate Mainframe Subsystem Support and CICS, Job Entry Subsystem, or IMS support enabled. For applications that need an enterprise server to run but do not use Mainframe Subsystem Support you need to use the ESTemplate.xml template. You can create your own templates using the mfds command and the following syntax:
    mfds -x [repository type] [repository address] [server name] <options> <user id> <password>
    Refer to the topic mfds for more details.
  5. Select a template and click Open.
  6. In the Associate with pane, select the projects to associate with the server.
  7. Click Finish.

    The new enterprise server is created and associated with the selected projects.
