Service Designer has failed to connect to the configured Integration Server (esbbat01d:5555) because it can only connect to the embedded Integration Server

What product/components do you use and which version/fix level?

Designer 10.11 trying to connect to existing 10.5 version IS server

I get below error

Service Designer has failed to connect to the configured Integration Server (wmserverbat01:5555) because it can only connect to the embedded Integration Server.

Are you using a free trial or a product with a customer license?

What are trying to achieve? Please describe in detail.

Do you get any error messages? Please provide a full error message screenshot and log file.

As per design, the Service Designer 10.11 works only with embedded 10.11 integration server, it won’t work with any other older or remote Integration Server. You might need to look for commercial version of Software AG Designer for any such capabilities.
