Multi-Server Configurations Need a Multi-Server Remote Connection Manager. This One’s Free.

Microsoft’s Failover Clustering and Network Load Balancing Team Blog has announced the general availability of their Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.0.  Used internally for a long time, this free tool is now available for download at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4603c621-6de7-4ccb-9f51-d53dc7e48047&displaylang=en.

You’ll notice that this tool provides a centralized mechanism to remotely control multiple sessions at once, across multiple servers at once.  A boon for WSFC clusters, NLB clusters, and even virtual servers, the Remote Desktop Connection Manager includes the ability to connect or disconnect to multiple servers as a group.  It can also save passwords for speeding up the login process.

Remote Desktop Connection Manager is a free download.
