Connecting to the server

To use Process Designer, you need to connect to a server. Typically, you connect to the server when you first access Process Designer, but you can also switch to a different server if you are already using the application. The first time you access a server, you will need to provide the display name, server name, or IP address. This adds the server you specified to the dropdown list that appears each time you start Process Manager. For each subsequent access, you only need to select the server from the list.

To connect to the server
  1. Click Start | All Programs | LANDesk Process Manager | Process Designer. If connecting to another server from Process Designer, click File | Select server.
  2. If this is the first time you'll connect to the server, click Add new.
  3. In the Add server dialog, insert the display name and the server name or IP address and click OK.
  4. In the Select server dialog, select the server from the drop-down list.
  5. Click Connect.

To bypass the Select Server dialog box and go directly to the specified server each time you start Process Designer, select the Always connect to this server check box.

To remove a server from the dropdown list, delete its entry in the WorkflowServers.xml file, located in the \LANDesk\ProcessManager\WorkflowManager folder. To remove all previous server definitions from the dropdown list, delete the WorkflowServers.xml file. A new copy of this file will be generated the next time you start Process Manager and follow the above steps.
