In order to enable clients to automatically detect their location within a network, you first need to configure the location database. If you do not configure a location database, and Location Required in the location policy is set to Yes or Disclaimer, the user will be prompted to manually enter a location.

To configure the location database, you will perform the following tasks:

  1. Populate the database with a mapping of network elements to locations.

  2. Validate the addresses against the master street address guide (MSAG) maintained by the emergency services provider.

  3. Publish the updated database.

Alternately, you can define a secondary location source database that can be used in placed of the location database. For details, see Configure a Secondary Location Information Service.
