Wouldn't it be great if the admin client could be tied up processing something and still be able to access the Notes client normally?  This way I could be replicating a database, registering 50 new users or waiting for a large log file to open on the admin client and still be able to write an email in the Notes client.  It's such a pain to wait!

I like it, Would like to see something like "Show Admin Console" option in "Tools" menu like "Show java console".

I get around this limitation by doing all my admin (and <8.5 development) by running separate Notes instances in a VM with the free VMWare Server.

There was already a post of this kind (I am too lazy to look it up for you now). And there was already a post to separate debugging and looking on a help database at the same time.

By the way you do not really need VMWare to run a second instance of Notes, when it suits you to run different versions of Notes simultaneously. To install that needs some handwork in the registry, but it can be done.

True, you don't need VMWare..it does however solve some annoying issues when running for eg, Standard and Basic clients simultaneously. I figured it was worth putting out there :)

This is truly a pain. If my admin client is busy connecting to a very remote slow server and opening a database, or performing some other task, I can't switch to my notes client and quickly check my mail.

This has been a frustration since day 1 with the admin client.
