The PST Flight Deck Administration Console provides for the full administration of the PST Flight Deck system.  Normally run on the PST Flight Deck server, the Administration Console is a powerful interface that should be used by only specially trained personnel.  There are situations where a less powerful console is needed and where the PST Flight Deck Management Console (Management Console) comes in.  The Management Console can perform all the functions of the Administration Console except alter PST Flight Deck settings.  This enables personnel without special training to perform tasks such as enabling users, checking the status of a user’s migration, correcting some types of failures, etc.  The Management Console runs on typical business workstations and its installation is very straightforward.
