Change RD Web Access Server URL

I am setting up a remote desktop server in Server 2012 R2.  

Everything is setup ok but my certificate for the server is  a wildcard certificate that covers my outside domain.  *.domain.com

When I connect to the remote apps on the server the remote computer they are hosted on says:  server.domain.local so the cert. doesn't cover this.  

How can edit my RD Web Access Server URL to be server.domain.com.  I have this setup on my internal DNS so if I go to this address from a browser it resolves to the server locally and it works with the certificate.  So I want my configuration on the server to use that url instead of the local url.  

Thanks,
Mathew

This cmdlet may be of some assistance -

http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Change-published-FQDN-for-2a029b80

A common scenario where the ability to change the published name is useful is when your internal domain is .local, .private, .internal, etc.  For instance, you purchase and install a wildcard certificate (*.yourdomain.com) for use with RDS, but when your users connect they receive a name mismatch error because they are attempting to connect to rdcb.yourdomain.local.  This cmdlet allows you to change the FQDN they will use to a name that will match your certificate (rdcb.yourdomain.com).

The cmdlet looks like what I need to do but I am getting this error when running it:

Set-RDPublishedName : The term 'Set-RDPublsihedName' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet...

I'm not sure why it won't recognize it.

This is the cmdlet that works:

Set-RDSessionCollectionConfiguration –CollectionName RemoteApps -CustomRdpProperty "use redirection server name:i:1 `n alternate full address:s:server.domain.com"
