Geographically locating clients

Because clients are often deployed in remote offices, it is useful to create a property that lets the clients report their own location. You can create a location property in BigFix using the Location Property Wizard.

  1. In the console, go to the BigFix Management domain, click Computer Management , and then click Location Property Wizard . A wizard document opens.
  2. The wizard creates a named property allowing the clients to identify themselves based on their subnet, IP range, or other information. Read the instructions in the wizard to create the property.
