The Solstice Dashboard for Enterprise Edition is a centralized management tool that can be used to monitor, configure and update Solstice Enterprise Edition Pods and Windows Software instances on a network. While each Solstice display can be configured individually via the local configuration panel, the Solstice Dashboard allows an IT administrator to manage larger deployments of Solstice from a central location. 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. When upgrading Solstice components to a new software version, Mersive highly recommends updating the Dashboard before updating endpoints or the Solstice Discovery Service. <BR><B>Dashboard Overview</B>:<BR>The Solstice Dashboard is available as a free download and runs on a Windows host on the same network as the Solstice Enterprise Edition Pods and/or Solstice Software instances it will be used to manage (or where the appropriate IP routes exists).
