I have Server 2012 R2 setup with the Hyper-V and Server Essentials role enabled. I am running multiple machines that I would like to RDP to through a RDP Gateway. The gateway is correctly configured and I can "see" the VM's on my network.
I have configured Group Policy on the VM's to use a certificate template (duplicated from the Computer template) called RemoteDesktopAuthentication, that uses the following as the subject name settings:
As this is issued through Active Directory it is signed with my Root CA, which is trusted by all clients, and has the following (relevant) properties
Subject: CN = TEST-VM, CN = Computers, DC = example, DC = com Subject Alternative Name: DNS Name=Test-VM.example.com
I was hoping that this certificate would allow me to access my VM at TEST-VM and at TEST-VM.example.com but it will only allow me to use TEST-VM.example.com. I know its a minor cosmetic thing having to type the domain after the host name but is there a way to accomplish this task?
Summary: Can I access my VM's through an RDP gateway using their Machine Name and thier full AD domain name?
Edit: Ryan Bolger has pointed me in the right direction, use the FQDN when a gateway is being used and use a VPN connection to allow access via just the Machine Name
