certificate mismatch on server 2012 RDS

I have used this guide

to set up a high availability server. All has gone well and its working fine. It is installed on local servers.

I am now attempting to set up something similar in Azure. I have used the same document as a guide but I have not set it up as high availability server and I have set up the whole thing on one server.

It is working but I am getting a certificate mismatch warning when connecting to the rdp session via the RDweb interface. The error appears at the final stage where the RDP session loads up.

I can still get to the session but wondered why the mismatch is happening and how I can stop in happening. I dont think this is anything to do with it being hosted in Azure.

you can always open the certificate when you get the certificate error and examine it.

Well the FQDN on the certificate is my external  hostname and does not match the internal hostname of the server.

But on my first onsite attempt I created a new DNS zone containing the alternate external FQDN for the server and therefore I didn't get the error. I have done the same this time but foot some reason it is still setting the actual real hostname of the server

add subject alternative name of the actual real hostname to the certificate

The host name on the certificate is host.domain.co.uk and the server host name is host.differentdomain.local

Is it possible to use a subject alternative name in this case?
