Note: Stating from FortiADC 5.x.x, the GUI shows the full country or region names listed in alphabetical order for location list and data center configuration. The Console uses country or region name abbreviations instead. The abbreviations are done in accordance with the ISO standards. So if you configure a location list or data center from the Console, be sure to consult ISO-3166-1 and/or ISO 3166-2:CN for the correct abbreviations to use. See the following example commands:

config global-load-balance topology

edit "tp1"
