Remote Desktop Connection Manager

imageIf you are not aware of this, and you are consistently connecting from server to server to server to server to server to server… (you get the point). Well then, consider this making you aware of it, as before today, I had completely forgotten about it entirely!

I was aware of its existence, and, I apparently even had it installed already today, when I downloaded it and went to install it again, as it asked me to repair or remove it. What is it? Well, think of it as RDP, but, with a sprinkling of awesome.

The description from Microsoft: “RDCMan manages multiple remote desktop connections. It is useful for managing server labs where you need regular access to each machine such as automated checkin systems and data centers. It is similar to the built-in MMC Remote Desktops snap-in, but more flexible.”

And their great blog post about it:

This blog entry image at the top with the “Double Facepalm”, not only from, but, discovered and brought to my attention by none other than Mark Rackley, who implanted this in our ‘Just Freakin’ Work! Overcoming Hurdles and Avoiding Pain’ session we co-present on. Thanks Mark – works perfect to convey my sentiments today about this…
