Is there a way to connect multiple SAS EG sessions? e.g. I need to connect TST server in one session, UAT in the other session and PROD in the other session. Right now I could only one session at a time (either TST or UAT or PROD). I used to connect EG by clicking on the EG icon available in my desktop.
If my EG is connected to TST and If I want to connect to UAT, I used to manually change the connection profile whereas If I have multiple sessions (one for TST, other for UAT..) open I can easily switch to the respective environment (TST,UAT or PROD).

You are correct - EG currently only allows you to have one server session open at a time and you have to change connection profiles to switch between server sessions.
You can have several EG sessions open at one time though, with each one working with different SAS servers.

I think that @SASKiwi means that you can start EG several times, i.e start the program several times. Each of them can have a separate connection. You can also use connect (if you have the license) to connect between machines in the same session, search for "signon".

Just go the Connections option and "set active" the other SAS server you want to connect to in your second EG session. This assumes you are sharing a single connection profile between EG sessions and it contains all of the servers you need to connect to.
