Help with RDS

GalaxyTechService used Ask the Experts™
Hello Experts,

I set up a RDS server a while back running windows server 2016. The security certificate i created and imported to each work station to run a remote app published by the server is about to expire.  When i generate a new certificate im getting a Personal Information Exchange (.pfx) instead of a Security Certificate (.cer).  Any idea what i am doing wrong?

Thank you,

the pfx is for the server. the file contains public and private key (and should be password protected)
The .cer file contains the public key only.
I export the .cer file after importing the pfx to the server.
If you select "include private key" while exporting the server-cert you got a pfx again.
