PST Flight Deck leverages a component installed on end-user Windows workstations called the Migration Agent. This agent is critical for discovering PST files, providing meta-data to help determine PST file ownership, managing the user interaction with the migration process, and uploading PST files to a centralized location throughout a migration project. The Migration Agent has a lightweight footprint and is supported on many client operating systems. The Windows version of the Migration Agent has 64 and 32-bit versions. The version of agent that will be installed will coincide with the architecture of Outlook that is installed.
PST Flight Deck has several features that are not required for a basic configuration but provide an enhanced, more robust, or more customizable experience. The features that are required for any given deployment will vary wildly and it is encouraged to discuss your needs with a qualified PST Flight Deck Architect to determine which components are appropriate for you.
PST Flight Deck permits the flexibility to support any size of organization. Smaller organizations may be well suited in utilizing a single configuration for all its users. A larger enterprise often has several conditions which make a one configuration fits all approach impractical. PST Flight Deck is able to support the smallest branch offices while managing multiple large campuses within a single environment. To begin to support an enterprises level of complexity, PST Flight Deck permits the customization of configuration settings within its environment via profile and location designation.
Profiles are the initial building block of the ability for a PST Flight Deck to have the level of customizable configuration needed to support todays enterprise. Profiles are used to permit an alternate configuration for users assigned to them. Examples where profiles may be of use are:
·Support complex network topology and limitations
·Support multiple locations
·Support site specific uploads and processing
·Support alternate configurations for different user types (e.g. Executives, road warriors, factory employees)
Profiles enable the assignment of unique File Scanner, Agent, Language, and Location configurations.
