Server farm is configured for load balancing via DNS round robin. How do we resolve the certificate mismatch warnings when users connect via RDP to the farm.mydomain.com from appearing?

What is best/common practice? If possible it is preferred to use a self cert rather than purchase. Access from outside the network is not relevant because we will be using a gateway appliance that will permit access from the outside. Once the gateway authenticate it will be as though the user is inside the network.

If the servers are not for public access then you don't need to buy the certs.

You should be able to use self signed certificates.

Here you can say it's trusted and to not prompt againYou will still get the warning but you can ignore the warning on subsequent visits, no certs needed
