Last Modified: 2016-09-19
I can't remote desktop into my Server 2012 R2 Core. I turned on remote desktop and disabled the firewall. I can ping and even connect to shares on it.

I've found these event log errors, but cannot find a fix on Google for:

The RD Session Host Server has failed to create a new self signed certificate to be used for RD Session Host Server authentication on SSL connections. The relevant status code was Object already exists.

** The Remote Desktop folder in certificates mmc is empty??

--Application and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > RemoteDesktopServices-RdpCoreTS > Operational
RDP_TCP: An error was encountered when transitioning from StatePreparingX224C in response to Event_ERROR_SendingX224CC (error code 0x0).

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
