I am always doing updates on win2003 servers. I normally do that on the server console from the server itself. I want to know if there is a way for me to shadow what is running on the server when the update is going on cause i have to keep going back and forth to see the console screen ... if there is a software that will allow me to do that w/o having to interfere a user that would be great
