Eric, the MCC amd MCS_ Job logs should show you this information, in LDMAIN\Logs for each job

Take a look at LDMAIN\Logs
In here you will see log files getting created. They are CSV format so could give you what you need. Not perfect but might be enough for you.

Thanks for the info, but i was looking for something that would give a update say every 10% or so in a log file for someone to check. It only shows you when it is complete in there. Basically, a way to see if it is stalled or what percentage it is at any given point.
No standard way really. I suppose you might be able to do something with an AutoIT script that activates when the MCast window appears. Perhaps it takes a screenshot so they can take a look? Not got an example but there must be a way for that to work
Not trying to hijack this thread but I have a similar question. Should you be able to see the multicast window when using RDP to the core. I don't ever see it and I connect to our blade server through RDP with the /Cosnole option.
As long as the server is Windows 2003 then yes, however. the console switch may not be working depending on your OS/SP. See if this helps
I think there are a couple of posts here indicating the issues with the separation of functions between the local and remote consoles (e.g., have to run X on the remote console and Y can be run on both). This is one thread that falls in this category. I personally don't know of any good way to monitor the progress of the multicast window without granting rdp access to the core. However, the LANDesk group here is plenty creative so something might come about. You could tail the log files, but the limitations of these files have been listed above. Nirsoft has a utility to grab the contents of certain controls (list boxes, etc) but it is static not realtime and I don't think no commandline so scripting it would be a bear.
Hopefully 9.0 will give us one unified console so we don't have to flop back and forth like a fish on the docks.
