Enforce users use PKI for Remote Desktop in Terminal Server 2012R2

We need to setup the AD CS that we can enforce users to use the PKI in order to connected with terminal server with out auto-enrollment certificate so the users need to install the certificate manually in their clients machine in order to connect with the Terminal Server session

Thank you .

What you are trying to do and what provided in link are two different things

Users do not require certificate in order to connect to terminal server

You need to install SSL cert on server hosting terminal server role and need to assign same to RDP through wmic or PowerShell

The SSL certificate subject name must be match to FQDN you are using to connect to terminal server

We need a internal certificate that only users can request once via https://<servername>/certsrv/ and install it in their computers in order to connect with the terminal server .
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

You can have certificate requested to CA server with user login
If you are not enabling certificate Autoenrollment, user must request it manually

But this certificate has nothing to do with RDS \ terminal server

Check below post

That's we need ..... The solution is certificate based computer authentication. If the computer cannot authenticate itself by presenting a valid certificate to the terminal server it is trying to connect to, then the RDP connection will be dropped before the user has a chance to attempt to log on.....
Thanks for confirmation
If you are trying to enforce certificate on client computer to connect to RDP sessions, it is not achievable according to my knowledge, because you cannot set that option in RDP protocol and RDP tool
You can enable network level authentication on RDP so that user has to authenticate prior to connect to server and once authenticated, it can get RDP session.

The way you are thinking is possible with IPsec vpn where computer certificate is required for computer authentication in addition to username and password
