SSL Certificates for Clusters



Are there any special considerations for creating SSL certificates for clusters?

Do you normally just get one standard SSL certificate per server (e.g. prtgserv1.blah.com and prtgserv2.blah.com)? Or do you have a DNS alias for the PRTG service and have an cert named for the alias (e.g. prtgsvc.blah.com)? Or do you mix the two and get a certs names for the alias but with subjectAltNames to allow you to access servers individually by name?

Hi sgarrat

What about a wildcard certificate?
