When you create a location, you provide a location name and then associate the desired network environments with the location.
In ZENworks Control Center, click> .
In the Locations panel, clickto launch the Create New Location Wizard.
On the Define Details page, fill in the following fields, then click:
Location Name: Provide a name for the location. Users never see the name; it displays only in ZENworks Control Center. The name must conform to ZENworks object naming conventions. For details, see ZENworks Control Center Reference.
Description: Provide optional information about the new environment. This is for your benefit. This information appears only in ZENworks Control Center.
Download Throttle Rate: Specify the bandwidth throttle rate for distributing content to devices located in this network environment. To maximize performance of your ZENworks Servers and network system, high bandwidth environments can use one set of throttle rates and low bandwidth environments a different set of throttle rates.
For every location or network environment an effective throttle rate can be set. Content that is being downloaded to a particular location should be downloaded with the set throttle rate. However, if content is being delivered to an end point from a content distribution satellite, the throttling rate set on the location or network environment is ineffective. The full bandwidth is being used for downloading the content.
The throttle rate can be overridden in a bundle so that high-priority patch and bundle content can be deployed quickly. If you do not specify a throttle rate, the network environment inherits the throttle rate assigned to the location.
Upload Throttle Rate: Specify the bandwidth throttle rate used by managed devices while uploading files to the server. These files can be audit, inventory, status, or message files. The default throttle rate is(zero), which indicates that the devices can use unlimited bandwidth. If you configured the throttle rate for both network environment and location to which network environment is associated, the throttle rate of the network environment takes precedence over the throttle rate of the location.
For example, if the configured upload throttle rate is 200 KB/s and agent is uploading the audit file, then the upload throttle rate is 200 KB/s. Along with the audit file if an inventory file is uploaded at the same time, then the throttle rate is shared between the simultaneous uploads. In this example, the throttle rate for each upload request is 100 KB/s.
Preferred Protocol for Communication: Click thelink for servers to use the configured protocol to communicate over the network. By default, the value is inherited from Zone setting.
Selectif you want the devices in the location to first try communicating with the servers using IPv4 URLs, before attempting IPv6 URLs.
Selectif you want the devices in the location to first try communicating with the servers using IPv6 URLs, before attempting IPv4 URLs.
This setting configured at Network Environment overrides the changes made in the location settings.
Audit Data Upload: Selectto enable the devices in associated location or network environment, to upload audit event data to any Satellite Server (Collection role) or Primary Server.
Selectto disable the devices in associated location or network environment, from uploading audit event data to any Satellite Server (Collection role) or Primary Server.
The agent is expecting only one CIFS Server and the format of the CIFS server is \\126.96.36.199\content-repo for IPv4 and \\2001-db8-85a3-8d3-1319-8a2e-370-7348.ipv6-literal.net\content-repo for IPv6.
On the Location HTTP Proxy Details, fill in the following fields, and then click:
In this panel, based on your requirement you can enter IPv4 and IPv6 proxy details.
Proxy IP Address: Specify the IP address for the proxy server.
Port: Specify the port number on which the proxy server must be listening.
Network Segment (in CIDR notation): Specify the IP addresses of the devices that should be using this Proxy Server. You must specify the range or IP addresses using Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) notation.
188.8.131.52/16 specifies all IP addresses that start with 123.45. For more information about HTTP proxy, see ZENworks 2017 HTTP Proxy Reference.
The IPv6 block 2001:db8::/48 represents range of IPv6 addressesfrom 2001:db8:0:0:0:0:0:0 to 2001:db8:0:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff.
On the Assign Network Environments page:
Click, select the network environments you want to define the location, then click to add them to the list.
Clickwhen you are finished adding network environments.
On the summary page, clickto create the location and add it to the Locations list.
When you add a new location, thelocation is listed last, and its order cannot be changed.
For more information on how the location and the network environment are selected on a managed device, see Section 5.4, Location and Network Environment Selection on a Managed Device
The following information is displayed for each location you add to the list:
Name: The name assigned to the location.
Reference Count: The number of ZENworks objects that are associated to a location.
Location Reference Count: The number of locations that include the network environment.
