RDS self signed certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Can you please tell me what would be the reasons for which the RDS self signed certificate thumbprint will change, other that changing the hostname, IP, or joining a machine to a domain?

    Do you have a list with all the modifications on the OS that will affect the RDS self signed certificate?

    OS: Windows Server 2008

    Thank you,

  • Hi, I usually create a self signed cert (makecert.exe) in order to add it to the rdp so that it does not change over time. It is a simple workaround.
