I have configured backup of 800xA Server backup. and a laptop which is configured as as a client Engineering Work Stations (EWS). I want to configure this client EWS as a server from where i can access system.
I simply restore the backup of server onto this EWS client. but it is showing Server is disabled? please guide how to resolve this problem?

Its true that most nodes in a system are suitable to be converted into a primary aspect server.
The procedure should be similar to this:
1. Ensure a healthy backup (no errors) is available
2. Disconnect EWS from current system
3. Prepare EWS; eg run laptop on workgroup rather than domain. Apply System Software User Settings.
4. Ensure EWS is free from any previous system (Google AKS for what registry key and folders to delete)
5. Restore backup
Did restore succeed?
The CLS in the EWS workstation will be installed with only "CLS Client" Features.
Hence first disconnect the Client from the existing System. Then update the CLS Features to "CLS Standalone" or "CLS Client & CLS Server".
Then restore the system backup and map this node to the Aspect machine in the backup.This should enable your system as Aspect Server.
