Create and Configure an Enterprise Server Region


In this tutorial, you create an enterprise server with the Mainframe Subsystem Support (MSS), configure it for the ACCT application, and run the application under Enterprise Server/MSS.

Create an Enterprise Server

Enterprise Server comes with a pre-configured enterprise server named ESDEMO. However, it is not configured for Mainframe Subsystem Support (MSS). Therefore, you must create a new enterprise server region configured for MSS for the CICS application.

  1. In Eclipse, open the Server Explorer view.

    If it is hidden, click Window > Show View > Other. Expand Micro Focus, click Server Explorer and then OK.

    You should be see the default directory server connection Local [localhost:86] in the view. If it is not visible, to display it:

    1. Right-click in the Server Explorer window, and click New > Directory Server Connection.
    2. Type localhost in both the Name and the Server address (IP/Hostname) fields.
    3. Leave the port as the default value of 86 and click Finish.
  2. Right-click Local [localhost:86] in Server Explorer, and click New > Enterprise Server.

    This starts the New Enterprise Server dialog box.

  3. Type ESACCT into the Name field.
  4. Leave the 64-bit box unchecked.
  5. Click the Browse button next to the Template field.

    This opens the location of the Enterprise Developer server templates.

  6. Double-click CICSTemplate.xml to select it.
  7. On the New Enterprise Server dialog box, check ACCT in the Associate with projects box; then click Finish.

    This creates the ESACCT server and adds it under the Local [localhost:86] directory server connection in Server Explorer.

Start the ESACCT Enterprise Server Region

Now, you need to start the enterprise server region that you have created and configured.

  1. If the list of enterprise server regions is not showing in the Server Explorer, expand Local [localhost:86].
  2. Right-click the ESACCT enterprise server region; then select Start from the context menu.
    Note: If you see the Enterprise Server Sign On dialog box, click OK without filling in any details; then click No when prompted to create a master password. Also, allow access for the Micro Focus Communications Process, if you receive a Windows Security Alert.

    The Console view shows the output from the Enterprise Server console log. It also shows that the server has started.

  3. In Server Explorer, right-click ESACCT; then select Show Console Log from the context menu.

    The Console view shows the details from the Enterprise Server console log.
