WVD Client Certificate Error

Copper Contributor

I'm getting an error when connecting to any apps or hosts using the Windows client (HTML5 works fine)

The certificate is not from a trusted certifying authority (attached)


I can add the cert manually, but obviously would need to do this for each host and if I auto-scale, that could be time consuming!


Is there a way to use a wildcard or something to stop this?

@AndrewTaylor140 I have the same thing, of course I could add a wildcard trusted by a public cert, or put it in the trusted store, but shouldnt this be working out of the box?

@ReneMP I haven't found a way to even use a wildcard on the hosts yet, that would do for now



Place a wildcard cert in your personal computer store and use the certificate thumprint of your wildcard.


wmic /namespace:\\root\CIMV2\TerminalServices PATH Win32_TSGeneralSetting Set SSLCertificateSHA1Hash="wildcard thumbprint"



I am having the exact same issue since end of August.

Is there any way to resolve it without having to manually install the newly generated certificate in the "Trusted Root Authorities"?
