I'm looking for a place to store the credentials for a group of computers in Server Manger on Windows server 2012, rather than having to choose "Manage As" over and over again.

Sorry I don't understand - where are there security groups in Windows 2012 Server Manager?
I seem to have to provide credentials for each server separately even if they are all in one group.
I an quite familiar with security groups in AD, but my question is about the new server manager, either installed on a Windows Server 2012 environment or in Windows 8.
