Configure the Location Database
Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-17
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:
Populate the database with a mapping of network elements to locations. If you use an Emergency Location Identification Number (ELIN) gateway, you need to include the ELIN in the <CompanyName> field.
Validate the addresses against the master street address guide (MSAG) that is maintained by the E9-1-1 service provider.
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.|
