You need to export the certificate and import it to other servers.  This is provided that you installed the cert and made it exportable.  Otherwise,

- Open IIS Manager, expand Web Sites
- Right-click your site with the SSL cert on it, and select properties.
- Select the Directory Securty tab
- Under Secure Communications, click Server Cetificate and click next.
- Select Export the current cert t a .pfx file
- Name it something, click next
- enter a password twice, click next
- you get a summary, click next

You can now move this .pfx file what ever server you need.  In IIS Manager, you follow a similar process to import the certificate.  Use the wizard, select import a cert for pfx... and follow wizrad.

Thank you, that sounds right,.. I am going to try your suggestions but do I need to wait for all users to be logged out of the server and the page? I am thinking it would be best since I dont want it to cause other problems.

It would be good practice to wait.  But it may not be necessary.  If you are forcing SSL on the site, then I would wait until you can get everyone off the site.  if you are not forcing SSL, then you can just add the cert and be done with it.
