Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure a Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based, Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)-based, or Windows Server 2008 SP2-based Remote Desktop Services (RDS) server to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) as a security layer.

  • You configure an SSL certificate template for the RDS server, and then the RDS server applies the SSL certificate.

  • The certificate is archived on the RDS server.

  • You try to use a remote desktop connection to connect an RDS client computer to the RDS server.

In this scenario, the remote desktop connection attempt fails. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

The remote computer requires Network Level Authentication, which your computer does not support.

Note For example, you configure the auto-enrollment feature for the SSL certificate. When the certificate enters the renewal period, the certificate is archived, and the computer requests a new certificate automatically. You can also manually renew a certificate by starting the Certificate Microsoft Management Console (MMC). To do this, right-click the certificate that is used by RDS server, clik All Tasks, and then click Renew Certificate with New Key.

The dates and the times for these files on your local computer are displayed in your local time together with your current daylight saving time (DST) bias. Additionally, the dates and the times may change when you perform certain operations on the files.

Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760
    1.22xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    SP1

    LDR

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 7 and for Windows Server 2008 R2" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.

Workaround

To work around this issue, delete the original certificate on the RDS server instead of archiving it at first. Or, you can delete the value of the TemplateCertificate registry entry that is under the following registry subkey after the issue occurs:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
