  • Hi,

    I am guessing you have RDWeb and RD Session Host running on the same server.  If my guess is incorrect please let me know.

    Please open RD Session Host Configuration (tsconfig.msc) on your server, double-click RDP-Tcp.  On the General tab, click Select and then select your ts.mydomain.com certificate.

    After completing the above please test and reply back with your results, positive or negative.
