Real Time Monitor for Software Updates

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We are starting to use Symantec to push out our updates.  We have been using ImminentWare.  We have created the necassary policies to push out the updates and have the schedules set.  Is there a real time monitor for how the updates are doing in the Management Console.  I have looked through all the reports and can't find it.  I know in ImminentWare it would give real time metrics about how the installs were doing at the time.  is there something like that and I'm just overlooking it.  i did not see anything in the User Guide for Patch Management.

SK,

I am very interested in this and it seems to be sufficient for what we need.  I have tried to install it, but running into some issues.  When I run the "RunOnce Sitebuilder (Install SQL Code)" Task, it fails with a Return Code: -1.  It only runs for about 3 seconds, and in the Log Viewer there is no errors.  It states task completed.  Is this a false error, or did it really error out?
