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.
