How to watch unattended robot execution

Hi Everybody

I’m sure almost everybody has some problems watching the execution of a process on the unattended robot. I want to share a workaround for this. You can connect to RDP session as shadow just follow these steps.

  1. Open command prompt from a machine with a user that has admin rights on the unattended robot
  2. run this command by replacing RobotServerName as the machine name of unattended robot:
    query session /server:RobotServerName
  3. Record the active session id from the list probably there will be only one active : <activesession_id>
  4. run this command : mstsc /V:RobotServerName /shadow:<activesession_id> /noConsentPrompt

You should now be able to see the execution of process
