Managing Locations

A Location is a group of computers which share a common property to identify a geographic or logical location. Most typically a Location is configured by a list of one or more gateways. During the Deployment the target computer can query the database for the location using the Default Gateway. In more advanced scenarios a Location can also be identified by other properties like e.g. the assigned Active Directory site. These advanced scenarios mostly require some additional logic to be implemented and/or the use of additional datasources like webservices to get the necessary information. But the configuration for the location can still stay in the Deployment Database.

Using the MDT Web FrontEnd you can manage the Location(s) and the different configurations settings. Find more information in the following Topics
