You can only create enterprise server instances on your local machine.
By default, this is the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\etc\ServerTemplates folder. Visual COBOL provides the ESTemplate.xml template which that enables you to create a fully configured enterprise server instance. You can create additional templates by exporting an active MFDS process repository using the mfds command. See the mfds topic for more information.
The new enterprise server is created and associated with the selected projects.
