Terminal Server App wants a new certificate

I have a site that has an SBS 2008 box (HW2008) and a terminal server (HW2008TS) running a remote app that remote users have been connecting to without a problem.

The self issued certificate from the SBS box was installed on the remote users PC's - it hasn't expired

all of a sudden the connection to the remote app has started displaying a notice that the remote computer could not be authenticated due to problems with it's security certificate.

but the certificate reference in the dialogue indicates the remote computer as the terminal server HW2008TS which as far a I know has no system capable of issuing a certificate. - "the certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority."

issued to HW2008TS.local
issued by HW2008TS.local

I suppose i'm asking why has the certificate requirement changed?
and where has this certificate come from?

installing the certificate in the trusted root doesn't allow access to the remote app.

Thanks

I think that you have to install the certificate in the personal container in the local computer account.

This is a self signed certificate, I donk know why, but you can follow the next link to instalo the cert.
