RDP Certificates Server 2012

In a small environment of servers 30-35, when RDP'ing in, user is prompted with the self issued certificate warning. My question is, how can you replace the self issued cert for each server for RDP without having to manually change each server?  Can this be done via a GPO or can ADCA handle this.  Also can you use an issued Certificate from a CA rather than generating one.  There is no Remote Desktop Gateway feature that i am used to seeing in server 2008.  All servers are 2012

multiple things here

1st of all client don't trust self sign certificate installed on server where you are connecting through RDP
2nd thing, the name of certificate is in the name of server and if you connected through IP address to server during RDP, still you will get warning
you can have internal CA installed and need to install RDP certificate (SSL) on each server with subject name as server hostname or server IP address from that CA and then the warning message would disappear
There is option to get certificate from public CA as well, but that too costly to simply connect to server via RDP
again, simply installing cert on each server personnel computer store is not enough, you need to tell server with one liner command that use new certificate
