IIS Manager with Smart Card to remote web server?

I'd like to manage a IIS server remotely with the IIS Manager. When selecting "Connect to Server" I get prompted for user name and password, which works fine, however I'd like to use a smart card here instead.
Is this at all possible? Should I be looking at the "Client Certificate Mapping Authentication" or is that only for websites, not IIS Manager?

We could set Client Certificate Mapping Authentication for a site as suggested in this article:
For a workaround you could try to configure that client certificate with remote management service by following below steps:
1.open IIS manager select server node.
2.select management service.

IIS Manager only support username/password authentication. There is no way to use client certs, Kerberos, or any other auth mechanism for it. And last I checked with the devs, there are no plans to change this.
You might instead look into the IIS Administration portal:
