Active Directory Site Does not appear in the location tab of computer properties

I have 4 sites in active directory sites and services.  Replication is working fine between all sites and no error messages in any of the event logs.  If I go to active directory users & computers, go into properties for one of the computers in the domain, click on the location tab and then the browse button, only 3 of my sites show up.  The one that is not showing up is a new site and does stay in sync with the other site domain controllers.  What do I need to do to get the 4th site to display as a site in the location browse box?

Did you add the location to the site in AD sites and services?

 Open Active Directory Sites and Services.
 Create the sites you want, if you haven't done so already.
 Associate a subnet for this newly created site, if you haven't done so already.
 Right-click each subnet you created, and then click Properties.
 Click the Location tab, type the location of the subnet in the following format based on your location naming convention, and then click OK:

That worked.  I guess I hadn't tried to manually enter the name in the Location box, I had only browsed the entire directory and hadn't seen the name in the list generated for me.

Very welcome!
