Remote Desktop Services - Windows 2008 R2 Server Certificates

I need some information regarding certificates that will be needed for a Remote Desktop Services infrastructure. There does not seem to be a great deal of information on what is required and how to install the certs.

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services infrastructure containing two Session broker servers, two Virtualization host servers, two RD Connection Broker servers (in a failover cluster), one RD web server (long range plans are to have two servers configured with a hardware load balancer), and a RD Gateway server. The RD Gateway server will also contain two servers load balanced with a hardware load balancing. Initially, I will be installing and configuring everything but the RD gateway server which will be deployed at a later date.
I was thinking about using a UC or SAN cert for RD Services. Is this the proper certificate for RD Services? If so which server names would need to be placed in the certificate? How do I generate the CSR needed to generate the certificates? How do I import them into the various RDS servers?

Thanks for the feedback.

I was thinking about using a SAN cert containing all the server names in the RDS Environment rather than having to use private and public certs.
