You can set a region's startup file after creating the region. Use the following procedure to create a region definition without
a startup file associated with it and then subsequently associate one.
Tree pane of the
Enterprise Server for .NET Administration UI, select
1 in the diagram below.
Actions pane, click
Define Region. See
2 in the diagram below.
The first page of the
Define Region wizard is displayed.
Enter the name of the database server instance where you want your region database to be created, or where your region database
already exists, in the
Database server instance entry field. For example, for a SQL Server Express instance on the local machine, type:
3 in the diagram below.
Enterprise Server for .NET Administration UI now connects to the selected database server and the next page of the
Define Region wizard is displayed. This page lists all existing region databases on the selected database server that are not currently
defined to the UI.
Either select one of the regions listed in the
Existing regions in server instance list, or enter the name of a new region in the
Region name entry field. Click
Finish to create the region definition. See
4 in the diagram below.
The region now appears in the
Tree pane of the user interface under the
Regions->CICS node (because we selected the CICS ESDEMO region startup file in the previous step), with the
icon to show that the region database has not yet been created. See
5 in the diagram below.
To associate a region startup file with the region definition that has just been created, click on
Add Region File in the
Actions pane. See
6 in the diagram below.
Region Startup File Location dialog is displayed
Select the region startup file to be associated with the region. Valid locations for the region startup file are:
- Local machine
- Select when the startup file is located on a drive on the local machine.
- Server machine
- Select when the startup file is located on another network machine. You would use this option when, from your local machine,
you want to create and manage regions on a remote machine.
- Cross-region database
- Select when the startup file is in the cross-region database of the database server instance that you specified earlier. This
is the preferred option for a production or a scale-out environment.
Browse button to browse for the region startup file in the selected location. See
7 in the diagram below.
Region_JCLDEMO.configfiles are installed to
%ProgramData%\Micro Focus\Enterprise Developer\5.0\SEE\config.
Ok to associate the startup file. See
8 in the diagram below.
Region Startup File Location dialog is dismissed
