Microsoft RemoteApp

Hey Experts,

I have setup RDS in the following way:
VM Host: Windows Server 2012R2
VM Software: Hyper-V
1 VM Contains: RDS Connection Broker / Gateway / Licensing / Web
2 VMs are Hosts
Client PC: Windows 10

I am trying to run RemoteApp.  I have an app published and can connect to it via the RDWeb URL.  When I download the remoteapp icon and run it, I am prompted to login.  After I login, I get the following error message:

"The connection has been terminated because an unexpected server authentication certificate was received from the remote computer."

I have recreated the certificates for the Collection a few times now but still can't get past this error.  I've also imported the certificate to the host servers just in case there was some issue there.

Any ideas?

If you remove one of the hosts from the farm does everything work fine?

Is the farm connected to the Internet?

If not, then the certificate chain, if using third party trusted certificates, does not get built. Each certificate provider we've worked with provides a manual set of instructions for building that chain.

Watch out for certain certificate providers that require an intermediate certificate set to be installed _before_ installing the final keyed certificate. GoDaddy was one when we were working with their product a year or two ago.

After removing one of the host servers from the pool, there was just too much weird stuff going on so I just blew everything away and started fresh.  Upon doing this, i was no longer getting the issue described above.

I started from scratch and that fixed the issue
