All of your IP Geo-location or IP Geo-intelligence data files must fit in the available physical memory of your data workbench server.
  1. Open the Lookups folder from the .zip file that you received from Adobe.
  2. Copy the IP Geo-intelligence or IP Geo-location folder to the Lookups folder in your data workbench server installation directory (you want to end up with a ...\Lookups\IP Geo-intelligence or a ...\Lookups\IP Geo-location folder on your data workbench server as shown in the following example. The names of the other folders within the Lookups folder may differ from the ones shown.
    Periodically, Adobe sends you files containing updated IP Geo-intelligence or IP Geo-location lookup files. When you receive these files, you need to load them onto your data workbench server as directed by Adobe. For instructions, see the following section.
