Force RDP to Use Certain Certificate
Posted on 2011-09-16
I will give lots and lots of details if needed but I'm going to try to spare you the fluff. The heart of my issue is on a 2008 R2 server with RDS roles. When a RDP connection is made there is a certificate warning because RDP is using a self-signed cert, rather than my ucc that I have specified in remoteapp manager, IIS and everywhere else. If I go to the certificates MMC, to the Remote Desktop/certificates and delete the self-issued cert (so that my godaddy ucc is the only cert listed), upon restrart of the RDS services or an incomming connection, it just re-creates the self-signed.....resulting in my friendly warning again. Is it even possible to do what I'm trying to do or will the server always generate it's own? If that is the case why do we even have the option of picking a cert? I have to be missing something. Thanks so much in advance!
