This Solstice Dashboard and Configuration Options video outlines the tools and functionalities available to IT administrators and technology managers in the centralized one-to-many management platform.
The Solstice Dashboard lets you monitor, update, and manage Enterprise Edition Pods and Windows Software instances on your network. Each Solstice display can always be configured locally via the configuration panel on an individual basis, but the Solstice Dashboard allows one or more IT administrators to manage larger deployments of Solstice from a central location. The Dashboard may be installed on one or more Windows machines on the same network(s) as the hosts to be managed.
Note that standard, non-Enterprise-Edition instances of Solstice will appear in the Solstice Dashboard but will not be manageable. These instances will need to be upgraded to Enterprise Edition to be manageable via the Solstice Dashboard.
In this video you will learn:
- How to access the configuration panel
- Options for importing Solstice hosts for management
- How to configure Solstice displays using Dashboard for one or multiple hosts
