Next, restart the Web application server service. For example, in a default Windows install this can be done from the Windows Management console for Services by restarting the Service name, JBoss — SASServer1.
To verify your new server from Enterprise Miner, log on to Enterprise Miner and create a new project that uses the new logical workspace server, create a diagram, create a data source, place the data source on your diagram, and run the diagram. You can select the new logical workspace server in Step 1 of the New Project Wizard.
Important information about managing and configuring your workspace server can be found under Managing Workspace Servers and Stored Process Servers in the SAS® 9.3 Intelligence Platform Application Server Administration Guide.
