hello today I want to talk to you about remote desktop connection manager it's a piece of software that was released by Microsoft several years ago and over the last couple of weeks I've gotten a lot of questions about it I was actually under the impression that this particular piece of software was used by those that are used frequently by those that support Microsoft Windows servers but unfortunately does not seem to be the case so I'm at the Microsoft comm website I have searched for and found the download page for remote desktop connection manager 2.7 and to get started I simply download and install the software this is just just to clarify this particular piece of software is in addition to Windows it's not the remote desktop that's built into Windows it's something that you have to download extra but this software will give you the ability to connect to many remote desktop sessions at once that's the take it take away there so download install and then run the software and here we go ran the software so the first thing you want to do when you open the software is you'll want to go ahead and create or save a new session here so I'm just gonna click new and I'll save this the session we'll just call it remote desktops say so now I have that save so now this point forward I can simply reference that save file and it'll bring up all my servers that I add here I like to separate my servers into different groups so I'll simply right-click on the remote desktop icon here at the top and I'll select add group this group for me let's say I have a bunch of servers that are in production and so I'll just name that accordingly if if I access all these servers using one username and password which I don't condone but I'm just putting that out there do you access amusing the same using a password you can enter those credentials here in this login credentials tab and when you do that then all the servers below will inherit those permissions so I'll just like add here so now I have a production group and now the next thing I could do is just say ok add server so I would simply add server 1 dot will be in its name local and if you don't change any of the other settings here at the top at all inherit from that production group at the top including like I said the login credentials and what I could do is add maybe another server server to and just to show you some more what else you can do I'll add another group and we'll call this disaster recovery and maybe a couple servers under there we'll call them server one – D are and maybe server two – er ok so now that I have all that stuff set up I could easily connect if these are actually valid servers I could easily connect each one of these servers by just double-clicking the login credentials that I've saved would be movie used to access the server additionally if I wanted to connect to both servers at the same time in this particular group I could right click and say connect group if I do that it uses the inherited login credentials I told you about before or I can simply select connect group as and then type in my username and password for the entire group and it would log in do all those all at once so as you can see here if you had you know 5 10 15 20 who knows how many servers you might have you list them all here one spot they're easily accessible double click on them to get access to them and then of course you can you know access all of them all at once last thing to do before you head out is make sure that you save all these configurations that's next time you come back you can easily access these servers that's it for now give it a try let me know what you think and we'll see you next time

  1. I was wondering there any way to merge two RDG files into one. Or import one RDG file into another one without the hassle of creating a text file or adding each server one by one?
