2.2. Associating Objects with the Default Organization and Location

Because Satellite 6 supports multiple organizations (logical management divisions) and locations (physical divisions of content delivery), you need to associate your templates, subnets, and other items needed for provisioning with the default organization (Default_Organization) and the default location (Default_Location).
Use the following procedures to make all the "pre-seeded" content available to the default organization (Default_Organization):

Procedure 2.1. To Specify the Default Location:

  1. On the main menu, click AdministerLocations and then click Default_Location in the Name column.
  2. Click Organizations to display the list of organizations.
  3. Click Default_Organization to add it to the Selected items list, and then click Submit.

Procedure 2.2. To Specify the Default Organization:

  1. On the main menu, click AdministerOrganizations and then click Default_Organization in the Name column.
  2. Click Locations to display the list of available locations.
  3. Click Default_Location to add it to the Selected items list, and then click Submit.

Procedure 2.3. To Associate the Domain with the Default Organization:

  1. On the main menu, click InfrastructureDomains to open the Domains screen.

    • Network address: 172.17.13.0
    • Network mask: 255.255.255.0

  3. Click Submit.
  4. Click Provisioning_Net to edit the subnet.
  5. On the Domains tab, select example.org
  6. On the Capsules tab, change the DNS, DHCP, and TFTP capsules to reflect the host name of the Satellite.
  7. On the Locations tab, select Default_Location under All items to associate the domain with the default location.
