Starting the EJB servers in VisualAge

I am trying to run an EJB in VisualAge and my book says that you need to start 3 servers - Location Daemon service, Persistent name server and EJB server.
To get to these servers, the book says to select the EJB group you have created, then using its pop-up menu select Add To..., Server Configuration menu item to bring up the EJB Server Configuration window. The picture of this window in the book has the 3 Servers listed.
However, when I try this I only get the EJB Server.
Is there something else I need to load into VisualAge to get these all displayed? Or, do you have any tips on how I can get around this.
In the Websphere Test Environment Control Center there is the Persistent name server, but not the Location Daemon service.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

I am assuming that the Location Daemon service is the servlet engine. You can find both the servlet engine and the persistent name server at Websphere Test Environment. I normally start my persistent name server before the servlet engine.

You're working from an older book. The LSD was folded into the PNS process a few VAJ versions back.
