1/ In case need to access console urgently:

In order to release tokens that are not yet in "outdated" status :
- Stop the Token Server
- Make sure you have the latest sldtkd.lic file (VERY IMPORTANT)
- Delete the sldtkd.dat file (All current leases will be terminated)
- Put the sldtkd.lic file in the sldtkd directory
- Restart the Token Server
- Restart all agents (either through the console or through the Management Server API) otherwise they will stop at the end of the "grace time"
