Workstation for Project


A project can only be deployed to a server when the server has an empty database and not has been part of a multi-server system. A server is considered empty when it does not contain any user-created objects, such as programs and graphics.


The server database can be emptied in different ways depending on if it is an Automation Server or an Enterprise Server:

  • Reinstall the Enterprise Server.
  • Upgrade the Automation Server with a new database.
For more detail about how to deploy AS or ES, refer to Lessons Learned Article LL#16571.
