Yes, there is a very easy way.  Take a look at the "NODENAME" option.
You can kick off the client with the "-nodename=" option
and you will start a session with the server as that node.
For example:   "dsm"

Using this method you will be prompted for the password.  If you
forgot what the password was, you will have to have your ADSM administrator
reset it.

Good luck!
