Can NDES server for Windows Server 2019 holds two certificates?

Hi,

As we are migrating the servers to Windows Server 2019, previously 2012 R2, we fear that the connecting devices will break in terms of the connectivity as we still require the devices to be still working with the 2012 R2 NDES setup before the migration.

Due to needing to introduce new enterprise ICA, believe the NDES service need to be re-configure with the Windows Server 2019.

Thus, my question would be if we need to remove and add new role for NDES (which from my understanding new certificate is issued which may break the connectivity) or we may do so in MMC > Certificates > Personal, and request new certificates, and able to hold 2 certificates and the devices from old is still able to communicate with the overall setup?

Hi there,

NDES is a function of Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) and is based on the Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP), which can enroll devices without other AD domain credentials. So I suppose the connection might not fail while you are making the Switch.
