SoftLayer_Location_Status models the state of any location. SoftLayer uses the following status codes:
*‘‘‘ACTIVE’'': The location is currently active and available for public usage. *‘‘‘PLANNED’'': Used when a location is planned but not yet active. *‘‘‘RETIRED’'': Used when a location has been retired and no longer active.
Locations in use should stay in the ACTIVE state. If a locations status ever reads anything else and contains active hardware then please contact SoftLayer support.
