Remote Desktop Certificates for Windows 2003 Estate

Hello

In 2008, I have distributed a RDP Certificate for all servers by using group policy and the certificate template field in the relevant group policy entry for RD Hosts.

However, it doesn't seem so easy to do this in 2003.  I basically need to get a RDP certificate onto each Server 2003 via group policy ideally.  I'm not a programmer, so scripting probably wouldn't be helpful at this stage!

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Sorry I was thinking you want to distribute slefsignet certificate to users so they will trust your sever.

But it is similar you can use the manual but certificate for TS server is stored in the terminal server's Personal store no Trusted Root certification store. this is how you can istnal certificate to each terminal server the same one.
