Island mode in Lotus Notes 8.0.2

Hi all, I upgraded the client version of Lotus Notes from version 6.5.4 to version 8.0.2. The problem I am having is Island Mode. If I try to use the program using Island Mode, it says "Unable to find path to server." The problem is that the "Location", which is what Island is referred to as in Lotus Notes, is pointing to the server and not the Local replica.

There is a local replica on the computer, I just cannot figure out how to get it to point to the Local Replica, and understand even less why its so hard to figure out.

In version 6.5.4, I used to be able to set the location by clicking in the bottom right hand corner where it says "Island Mode", and select Edit Location. However, for some reason it got totally changed in version 8.0.2, and when I select Edit Location, I get a box that looks like it wants me to add a contact. Please help me change the location of the Island Mode to Local so that I can use it. I've attached a picture of what it looks like when I select "Edit this Location".

Thank you in advance.
