To create a new enterprise server

You can only create enterprise server instanceenterprise server regions 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 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 additional templates by exporting an active MFDS process repository using the mfds command. See the mfds topic for more information.

  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.
