Location Unknown

I have configured a new zone (LAB_ZONE) using ZCM 11.2.2 MU2, all workstations in the environment have been updated to 11.2.2.16219 Monthly Update 2, and the one primary server is also at 11.2.2.16219 Monthly Update 2. Things are running well, except for the Location Awareness.

Currently my workstations are still displaying ~unknown~ for the Configuration Location: I have configured the following items, Gateway, DNS Servers, DHCP Servers, and Client DNS Settings. Each of those items, have been checked for "Match Required" and the minimum match type is set to 5, 2 (GW) 1 (DNS), 1 (DHCP), and 1 (Client DNS Settings) under the "Locations" (A2_Lab) I have the primary server listed for each of the servers, Collection Content, Configuration, and Authentication.

Is there anything further that I should be doing, or is this a known issue in 11.2.2 MU2? I did create a location assignment policy, and when I refreshed my workstations that did report that their new location was ~unknown~ and the Policy did display as having been applied

Thank you,

Re: Location Unknown

also tried to remove ~unknown~ location from the Policy that I created and received an error, that it could not be removed

Re: Location Unknown

AFAIK, a PC can only have 1 Gateway.
If you are requiring it to match 2 different Gateways, then I don't
think it could match.

I would start simple and build up.

Test just matching DHCP, Then test just DNS, Then just Gateway, etc.. etc...

See which ones you have working.
Then start building more complex rules.
