How do I add locations to AD objects?


I am using a full 2008 server domain with win 7 clients.

I have been setting up site for our two locations. I have noticed there is a location tab on the properties of most objects. This tab has a box I can type in & a browse button. My browse button is disabled/greyed out.

How can I enable it so I may select locations??

I have typed locations into a few places but it does not seem to be getting to browse button enabled.

No I do not want to do that.

I needed to enable this. It was right under the one you said.

Pre-populate printer search location text

This lets me then pick from a list of sites I have set up.
