To import an enterprise server

You can import an enterprise server instance into Enterprise Server from within Visual COBOL. You need to have the server definition files (either in XML format or packaged as a .zip archive) exported from another instance of Visual COBOL.

  1. In Server Explorer, right-click localhost under Micro Focus Server and click Import Server.

    This starts the Import Server dialog box in which you can specify the following details:

    Import server definition file
    Specify the server definition file (either in XML format or a .zip archive) which was previously exported from Visual COBOL.
    Verbose output
    Check this to view detailed information in the Output window during the server import.
  2. Browse to and select a server definition file to import and click OK.

    This imports the server into Enterprise Server. The IDE automatically displays it under localhost in Server Explorer.
