W2k8 R2 RDP-TCP Settings - Can not assign SelfSigned certificate

Hello Experts,

I am getting mad here :(

I have created a self signed, server authenticated certificate for my Terminalserver Farm named
“TSF-Office.domain.local” the certificate is valid but I can not assign it to the RDP-TCP Settings in Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.

I choose the RDP-TCP properties, then  I go to certificate which names “auto generated” in the moment.
Then I choose “Select” to assign my Certificate, but instead of showing a list of my certificates there is a popup message telling me  “There are no installed Certificates on this remotedesktop Sessionhost”
But the certificates are listed under “personal\certifcates” in the certificate Snap-in what do I miss?

Hi,

The certificate is installed into computer’s “Personal” certificate store correct?

if you access the certificate does it has a  private key in it?

Private Key
if you have a private key and still not working

then check this (Similar Issue),

Hi Virastar.
Thanks for this. I am getting closer. There was no privat Key in this Serverauthentication Certifikat.
The Problem is I want to certify a TerminalServerFarm. Lets name it
TS-Farm.contose.com
In this Farm i have to Terminal Server w2k8-tsrv01 and w2k8tsrv02. When I connect to the Farm i always get the error Message that the certificate is wron becaus i like to connect to TS-Farm.contose.com but the Server I physically reach is w2k8-tsrv01 or w2k8tsrv02
so the warning is right.

Can you help me with this?
