Certificates needed for Microsoft Remote Desktop Services
Posted on 2012-09-06
I´m setting up a rather typical RDS 2008R2 farm; with two Connection Brokers and 10 Session Host servers. I´ve created the first Remote App and published it on the RDWeb website on the session host servers. It is signed with the company wildcard certificate which is also used all over the server farm.
Now everything works fine except for users being prompted twice for credentials, first when they access the RDWEB page, lets call it: erp.company.com and then again from the session host server they get directed to, ie. host1.company.local or host2.company.local.
I´ve read a number of articles on how to configure this but I´m still to find the "one and only" way it should be done - maybe I´m missing something obvious.
Can someone shead a light on this for me - can I use my wildcard certificate at all or do I maybe need a SAN certificate that includes both the .com and the .local names and FQDN´s ?
