You may recall that Microsoft MVP Chris Shaw has been working with RDM for the past year, and occasionally blogs at https://chrisshaw.wordpress.com about his experiences and insights. For example, in his last post, Chris highlighted a cool RDM tip that lets him easily monitor his servers. You can find it here: https://chrisshaw.wordpress.com/2013/01/28/quick-tip/
Recently, Chris has been working on setting up a centralized data source for RDM, so that his entire team can use it, too. And now, we’re happy to report that he’s completed his mission! All his remote connections and credentials are now securely stored in the database, as are those of his co-workers.
Managing Remote Connections
Chris has done an excellent job outlining how the new centralized data source allows his team to: take advantage of a more efficient sharing environment, get organized, streamline management and increase productivity.
