RDS in WIN8 Feature highlight no. 7 SSL configuration made easy.
If you ever had to set up or configure certificates for a Remote Desktop Services environment based on Windows Server 2008 (R2), you’ve probably dealt with having to setup certificates in many different places on many different machines running the various RDS roles. With Windows Server 8 (Beta) SSL certificate management has been made much easier for the administrator.
If you open up the server manager en browse to “Remote Desktop Services” from the left pane and select “Collections” you have the ability to choose “Edit Deployment Properties”.
A dialog will appear in which we select “Certificates”. Using this dialog we can actually setup the SSL certificate for the Redirector, publishing and RD Web Access all from the same console!
