How can I view users currently connected to server?

Hi,
I'm in the process of patching a group of servers that I recently inherited. Because of Microsoft's current URGENT patch that has to go out immediately. I've applied the patch, and i'm ready to reboot, but I'm getting the afore mentioned error.

I need to be able to determine the nature of the connection, e.g. active or not, and if at all possible who is connected so that I can notifiy them.

We're a 24/7 shop so it could be highly probable that someone is actually connected at any time of the day or night. However, the patch has to go out so at this point I'm maintaining damage control. I'm hoping there is some type built in connections properties window. I'm REALLY not in the mood for another script. (See my other question in case your curious)

Thanks,

JB

To see what users are logged in to the Terminal Server, use Terminal Services Manager in the Administrative Tools.

To see what users are using shares, use Computer Management, System Tools, Shared Folders
