I use Microsoft Remote Desktop Beta for manage the remote server.

enter image description here

But there is an issue for me.

because the Remote Desktop Beta only save the user like this:

My question is, if I have many remote server, the username all are Administrator, but the password are different.

every time I login a server there I will input password again. because they have a different password.

how to solve this problem? or is there any tool without this issue?


You can use the domain\username syntax to distinguish between accounts for different computers – it works with local accounts too, with the computer's short hostname in place of the "domain".

For example, server "WEB-1" uses username WEB-1\Administrator;
server "MAIL-2" uses username MAIL-2\Administrator; and so on.

  • the WEB-1 I can use random string right? – aircraft Dec 6 '18 at 7:10
  • No. As I already said, for local accounts that's the server's hostname. (The one you see in the server's "System Properties" for example.) – grawity Dec 6 '18 at 7:15
