  • Requesting a certificate for a RDS Gateway

    Hello,

    I have a RDS Gateway in the DMZ, hence, not domain-joined

    I am following this guide to get the certificate: http://sheeponline.net/rds-certificates.html

    But my machine, not being domain-joined, does not have a FQDN like: computer.domain.com

    So, according to the mentioned guide, the certificate subject should be a FQDN.

    Should I join the machine to the domain?

    Maybe I could add a DNS suffix to the machine, even when not join into the domain?

    Thanks in advance!

    The DNS suffix is independent of the AD domain
    How is DNS being provided?

      I am pointing the RDS Gateway machine's DNS to the internal DNS server (DC1) , through a rule in the isa firewall, and it works fine.

      Yet, following that article, the certificate's common name is a FQDN, whereas the RDS Gateway server does not have a FQDN, just a netbios machine.

        Answering myself:

        Yes, if you add a dns suffix to the RDS Gateway (which is not domain-joined) , the certificate request goes just fine.

        I have another question:

        If I had some internal RDS Servers (LAN, behind the internal firewall) , then the Certificate should be a SAN ?
