custom self signed certificate for sign rds remoteapp


I 'm actually build a remote app infrastructure.
I have a RDweb which my remoteapps.
I have generated a selfsigned certificate for ssl protocole of rdweb, configure it in the rdp connector, and sign my applications. Everything is ok with this.

My problem is that, the actual name of this server is a normalized name (exemple : a56trc001.df.gt.toto)
I must now configure a friendly DNS alias to point to this server (exemple : myapp.mybsiness.com).
So I generated a selfsigned certificate in pfx format point to this friendly server name.

I configure it in rdweb using the binding edit, it's OK.
I configure it in rdp connector, and it's OK

But when I want to sign my apps, I can only see the normalized name certificate, and I didn't find where I can import it to see it in the server manager, for app signing.

I wish you could help me.

I finally find the solution.

The certificate must be placed in the Remote Desktop store of the local computer certificate store.

Just have to launch a mmc, add certificate snap-in, choose local computer and import the certificate in the Remote Desktop store .

The certificate must have at least DigitalSignature keyUsage.
