RDS SSL Certificate installed but not working

Sometimes when you install an RDS certificate it does not work the likely reason is that you were using a self signed certificate and then changed to a public one.

RDS only likes one certificate in the local machine \remote desktop certificate store

To find out it is easiest to use powershell I find


So check the thumbprint of the Certificate that should be for the RDS server and remove any certificates that do not match


things should then work

failing that reboot server and then it will work ­čÖé
