SSL certificate in active/backup or active/active setup - do I need a separate certificate for each ADX?

Is it OK to use the same certificate at both ADX in an HA setup (active/backup or even more interesting active/active) doing SSL offload running ADX OS >= 12.1?

Thx.

It is not necessary to get a separate certificate for every ServerIron. It is possible to install the same one at both ServerIrons. Have a look at the CA contracts - some CAs want you to buy a certificate for every active box and some other want you to buy a certificate for every single real server behind a virtual IP address at the load balancer doing SSL offload.

Nevertheless it is technically possible to install the same certificate at two ServerIrons being active/backup or active/active.
