Running vusers from multiple locations

I have req to run test with multiple users from diff of machines located at diff locations
Ex:5 busses from location one,next 5 users from location 2 etc

I think of two options,
1) upload multiple scripts and assign LG machines as per reg. But this will make my scenario very difficult to manage.
2)upload all scripts and assign to all scripts and user will pick available lg

Is there any other procedure or easier way to achieve?.

@snpsThis is how I would do it:

Performance Center (and likely Controller) has the following relations:

1:script -> N:groups:N <- N:LGs

So can can create for 1 script multiple groups Use e.g. the group name:

script1_location1, script2_location1, ...

script2_location1, ....

Now assign a LG: LG_location1 to all the groups *_location1 etc.

In Performance Center this can easily performed. Tip: use % and not fixed user amounts for distribution of user over the groups.

It is more difficult (impossible?) to control which scripts and how many vusers will go to each LGs esp when you want to add more users.
