To Add an Enterprise Server Instance

  1. On the Home page of Enterprise Server Administration, click Add at the bottom of the table of servers.
  2. Specify a name for the server in Name.
  3. Select the Working Mode for the server. If you are creating your server in an environment that supports both 32-bit and 64-bit applications, you must specify the server's working mode. A server with a 32-bit working mode can run only 32-bit applications. A server with a 64-bit working mode can run only 64-bit applications.
    • You cannot change the working mode of the server once it has been created. You can however, change the mode when you copy or import a server.
  4. Choose a server type:
    • Click Micro Focus Enterprise Server if you plan to run COBOL application programs as services in a service-oriented architecture.
    • Click Micro Focus Enterprise Server with Mainframe Transaction Option if you plan to run CICS or JCL applications that have been migrated from the mainframe.
  5. Click Next>>.
  6. Specify a host name or IP address in the second of the two fields next to Server Address. You can leave the value as *:*, where the first asterisk (*) indicates the IP address of the current machine and the second indicates any available port number.
  7. Specify the location for files output by the Directory Server, such as trace and dump diagnostics files, in System Directory. This directory cannot be shared between enterprise servers. The default is \es-name where es-name is the name of the enterprise server.

    If you specify a directory in this field, that directory must exist; Enterprise Server does not create it for you.

  8. Specify the start-up configuration you want in the fields under Startup Options.
  9. Specify any trace flags you want to be set in the fields under Trace Flags.
  10. Specify any configuration information the server requires in Configuration Information For information on what you can specify, see the section Configuration Information in the chapter Servers in your Configuration and Administration Guide.
  11. Specify a text description of the server in Description (optional).
  12. Click Add.
