Works for me. What OS has the server you are connecting into? I connected to win2012 and the password got saved alright.

I can see where I enter it for each server but is there nowhere like in remote desktop connections I can enter the username and password once and it is used for all connections

Ok, double checked that: works with 2008 (and 2012 as mentioned before), does not work with 2003. With 2003 I did not get offered the checkbox to save the password when connecting via server manager.
When connecting via mstsc.exe, all works.

So server manager is not compatible with 2003 server RDP password saving, I guess.

You are changing the subject :)
If you have support for win8, tell Microsoft about it, they will be interested and helpful.

If I were you, for the 2003ers, I would save .rdp files, as simple as that.
