New > Database > Location creates a new location object. A location is a geographical place, such as a city, country, or some other region. A location can also identify the purpose of a computer involved in a Global Workshare Configuration, such as Host, Satellite1, or Satellite2. The location can be any string identifier that represents an informative name for the location. Data is typically transferred between workshare locations consisting of a host and its various satellites.
Unlike permission group objects that are available only to the given model database, the location object is a site-wide object. After a location is created, it is available to any model in the site.
New Location is not available at satellite locations. New locations can only be created at the host.
