Issue Deploying VHD Role with regards to remote desktop certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When trying deploy my VM role, I get the following error:

    Error Creating New Deployment

    Error creating deployment for hosted service 'XXXXXXXX'

    The remote desktop certificate with thumbprint XXXXXXXXXXXX does not have a type of key exchange and cannot be used for decryption

    What am I missing in regards to my certificate that I'm using? Any pointers would be great.

    Thank you!

  • Hi,

    As far as i know, Remote desktop certificate requires .pfx certificate defaultly. Do you use exsiting certificate or just create a new one, if you use .cer certificate may cause exception during uploading.
