Can someone point me in the right direction (MS article maybe?) for replacing the certificate on RDWEB Webclient thats about to expire.
Do i simply run this again? Import-RDWebClientBrokerCert <.cer file path>

Thanks for the help.

    Hello @van Daalen

    1. Delete all the old certificates in the personal store of the RD Webserver
    2. Reboot the Webserver
    3. Generate a new certificate request in IIS Manager
    4. Imported it into Certificates - Local Computer > Personal in certlm
    5. Export the .pfx file for the Connection Broker
    6. Redeploy the certificate using the Server Manger / Remote Desktop Services / Deployment Overview / Tasks / Edit Deployment Settings

    Hello Karlie,

    Thank you. But what you are explaining is for normal RD Deployment, i know how this works.

    The question im asking is for RDWeb Webclient (HTML5 client)
    I know how to place the certificate, but how do i renew it when the certificate is about to expire.
