It's slash admin not slash console

I think I am late to the party with this discovery.

If you use "mstsc /v:SERVERNAME /console" in a script file or via start>run then the /console will be ignored (with no warning) and you will be connected to a normal session that is not the server console.

For Windows Server 2008, Vista & I believe Windows 7 the flag is now /admin instead.
