Master Console

I was a sys admin on a HP3000. I was able to virtually move the console where ever I needed it for commands that had to be done at the master console. So I could be at home and perform some functions that you would usually have to do from the console. Now I am sys admin newbee on an AIX pseries. I would like to be able to "take" the console. Does anyone know if this can be done?

I use telnet to perform any function that I need. Not sure what you mean by taking the console with you. What can you do at the console that can not be done through a telnet session.

master console

My problem is that we run 3rd party software (Symitar) So even though I can get to the unix level I do not have many privleges. For instance, I have a very easy patch to put on yesterday but I had to use an UPDATE command fromthe master console to do it. With MPE I could just tell become the master console anywhere I wanted. There has to be a way to do the same thing with this system. And I am thinking that being the master console would be a unix thing. Even if I tn in and try the command, I get Must be done from Master console. I am trying to work around some of their traps and make life easier. I am far from a unix guru, yet.
