Configuring Solstice Displays
There are multiple ways that you can configure a Solstice Pod. You can configure the Pod without a network by plugging a USB mouse and keyboard directly into the Pod. However, Mersive recommends using the Solstice Dashboard to configure your Pods in order to streamline deployment and management.
There are a few methods to access your Pod’s configuration settings.
- Individually configured: Every Solstice Pod can be configured via the individual Pod’s configuration panel. The Pod's configuration panel can be accessed by connecting a USB mouse and keyboard to the Pod, or by entering the Pod’s IP address into a web browser, then clicking the Settings icon in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. If the presence bar at the bottom of the Solstice screen is hidden, you can use the mouse to long click or hit the Esc button on your keyboard to show the presence bar and access the Pod's local settings.
- Centrally configured: The Solstice Dashboard 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. Instead of individually configuring each Solstice display via its local configuration panel, the Solstice Dashboard streamlines the deployment process and allows IT administrators to manage their deployment from a central location.
Managing Your Solstice Deployment
We recommend that technology managers responsible for Solstice use the Solstice Dashboard as their primary tool for ongoing management and maintenance of the deployment. Managing a deployment could consist of checking the status of the Solstice displays, upgrading the deployment to the latest software version, or performing a silent installation of the Solstice App on your organization's Windows PC.
