RemoteApp Server Security Certificate

698 Views
Last Modified: 2012-06-06
We are running a remote app on a Windows 2008 sp2 64b server.  Every 6 months the users of the .rdp file are prompted to install the new server security certificate. The server certicate is good for only 6 months.  Both the users and the remote desktop server and in the same Active Directory.  

We are not running an enterprise CA server. We are planning to, just do not have the time now to implement it.

I would like to know what are my options to have the security certificate accecpted automatically or extend the server certificate's expiration date so it does not expire every 6 months.

also you can distribute the certificate via GPO as trusted.
somewhere near machine policy - domain-trust ...

I tried the GPO route.  Getting the new self-generated server cert before the old one expires is the challenge.  How can I get the replacment cert in a GPO before the old cert expires?

I think  "change the certificate template" is the route to go.  Hence I have begun planning for the certificate services install.

thanks
