The Cloud Locations step applies to those users who have compute zones assigned to location groups in their billing plan.
If the user's billing plan has several compute zones, some of which are assigned to location groups, whereas others are not - the cloud locations screen will not be available in the wizard. In this case the wizard will start with the Properties step.
Indicate your application server's cloud location:
- Country - choose the country, where the cloud is located, from the drop-down menu.
- City - specify the city, where the cloud is located, from the drop-down menu.
Step 2 of 4. Properties
