Last week Microsoft released Remote Desktop Connection Manager version 2.7 (aka RDCMan). It has some really cool features and supports Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2. This tool is essential if you run a lot of virtual machines. One of the new features allows the ability to connect directly to virtual machines (called virtual machine connect-to-console support). Configuring a connection for this new feature is rather easy once you have the ID of the virtual machine. The following PowerShell command should do the trick:
Remote Desktop Connection Manager manages multiple remote desktop connections. It is useful for managing server labs where you need regular access to each machine such as automated checking. Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.7. RDCMan manages multiple remote desktop connections FREE. Tool Microsoft.NET Framework Repair Tool. This tool detects and tries to fix some frequently occurring issues with the setup of Microsoft.NET Framework. But you can still use RDCMAN 2.7 if you do not have much concern on the security flaw. And we can share the application installation link for your if you want. Meanwhile, if you hope there are same functions as RDCMAN 2.7 in Remote Desktop Clients, you can post your suggestions using below link. Feedback for Microsoft Remote Desktop Clients.
Once you have this information, enter it on the Server Settings tab like in the following screen shot:
The Server name field is the name or IP address of the Hyper-V host and not the VM.
Once you have this setup, you should be all set…that is unless you get the following error like I did (BTW – I am running Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 on my laptop as my Hyper-V host):
Disconnected from VMNAME (192.168.1.243)
[Unknown disconnection reason 3848]
The reason for the error appears to be that the Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) policy on the Hyper-V host is not enabled to authenticate user credentials from a remote location. Setting the following registry keys fixed part of the problem for me.
One other thing that I had to do in order to get this to work was to add my account into the local Hyper-V Administrators group on my Hyper-V host (even though my account was already a local administrator). Now when you connect to a VM and you are prompted for credentials, use your credentials for the Hyper-V host for the initial prompt. These credentials can also be saved on the RDCMan Server Properties under the Logon Credentials tab. Once connected, that will bring you to the logon screen of the VM where the credentials for the VM are entered.
More information about the CredSSP policy issue, as well as alternate configurations (i.e. GPO), can be found in the following knowledge base article:

Remote Desktop Manager Windows 10
- Application is now DPI aware
- Undocking a server not visible in the client panel resulted in the client not being shown in undocked form.
- Ctrl+S shortcut didn’t work at all. It now works and always saves, even if there are no detected changes to the file.
- Shortcut keys didn’t work when focus was on a thumbnail.
- Add/delete profile in management tab. In same dialog instance, profiles are not updated. Similarly adding a new profile from combo doesn’t update the tab.
- Window title was not updated when selected node is removed and no new node selected (open a file, close the file.)
- Connect via keyboard didn’t always give focus when it should.
- Connected Group would always show itself upon connecting to a machine, regardless of setting.
- Selecting a built-in group then hiding via menu option didn’t work properly.
- Editing server/group properties did not always mark a file as changed.
- Non-changes could result in save prompts at exit. This should no longer happen.
- Activating the context menu via the keyboard button was not always operating on the correct node.
- Changing a server/group name doesn’t change window title if the server/group is currently selected.
- ALT+PAGEUP and ALT+PAGEDOWN hotkeys were switched. This is fixed for new installs—for existing files you’ll want to change on the [Tools.Options.Hot Keys] tab.
- /reset command line option wasn’t resetting all preferences
- “Server Tree” option from “Select server” focus release dialog didn’t show the server tree if it was hidden.
- New file directory now defaults to “Documents”.
- ListSessions dialog sometimes popped up in a weird location. Now placed within the main window
