New to 2016 Remote Desktop Services...

Is there a good 'new to' or 'setting up' article available out there?
I'm coming from a 2008 environment & it appears a lot has changed!
Basically, users will be logging on to remote desktop server to run quickbooks & office apps.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Anything written for 2012 will work. Technet has good step by step docs. The big architectural change happened between 2008 R2 and 2012. Everything since is incremental. Another is on the horizon, but hasn't been released yet.

Trying to add certificates, via Configure the deployment > select existing certificate & browsing to the folder, its not seeing anything. It's looking for a .pfx certificate & all I have in there are .crt & a .p7b ones.
Where did I miss something?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
You basically have to request one (I find IIS is easiest) with the private key marked as exportable. Then finish the process. Then export the cert with the private key. That'll be the appropriate file type.

When exporting, there are 4 checkboxes, only the first one checked - go with defaults?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
I don't recall the defaults. But just make sure you are exporting the private key.
