Can I create RDS SSL certificate with additional FQDN suffix namespace

Hi,

I have been asked by my organisation to create an RDS Remote Desktop Authentication certificate to enable SSL cert authentication

The trouble is our servers have their own network connection used for management access and as such the DNS namespace is slightly different from the AD domain namespace:

AD Namespace: contoso.com

RDS Namespace: HOSTNAME.management.contoso.com

Is there any way in which I can add the 'management' suffix into the published RDS certificate template?

Many thanks,

    Hi,
    1.For RDS certificates requirement, kindly check the details of following article:Certificate contents
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/it-pro/windows-server-2012-r2-and-2012/dn781533(v=ws.11)#certificate-contents

    2.In my RDS deployment, I customized subject name during certificate enrollment process when duplicating existing template and modify for RDS usage.
