RDP Gateway loses SSL cert after reboot


I had a Remote desktop gateway that has functioned for years without issue.  This morning after the server updates were installed the gateway no longer functions. Remote nodes are saying it is a certificate problem.

When I go into the RD gateway manager it says I do not have a certificate installed. I click import certificate. Select the current, valid certificate and hit apply. Everything seems to go fine except a simple refresh shows the error is still there "RD Gateway is not set up and needs a certificate ...

I have restored the whole server from backup a week back and it comes back with the same problem...

Can you verify first is the correct certificate is showing up in the local machine store:

from a powershell window (run as admin)
gci cert:\LocalMachine\My | ft subject, notafter, serialnumber

Once you verify the certificate above is correctly installed try running a store repair on the required certificate
certutil -repairstore <serialnumber for the correct certificate from above>

Then try reapplying the certificate in RDP, if that still fails we can dig a little deeper.

Also what version of windows ?

Known bug.

Had to check the https:  binding in IIS of the default site and change it to All Unassigned. From there the cert installed normally...
