Installing one SSL certificate on two frontend servers

I have two frontend servers feeding into on backend MS Exchange server.
All are running 2003 with SP2. I need to install the same SSL certificate on the two frontend servers.
This system has been up and running for several years.

I have a Verisign SSL that is due to expire next week. In the past I have purchased one cerfiticate and run it across both frontend servers. The two frontend boxes are running in a load balanced config.

Of course both servers respond to only one domain.

I have installed the same cert in past years on the two different boxes but for some reason I can get one of the servers to accept the new SSL cert.

I honestly don't remember how I did this the last time.

Any help with pointing me in the right direction would be great!

That is probably going to be a breach of the SSL certificate license - generally they only license you for one server...

This worked perfectly! I spent more than an hour looking for this on technet. "server farm" is the term I should have used.

Thanks!

Verisign offers a second SSL cert for this type of application for a much smaller than normal fee.

For an additional $50 per year you can use this certificate on up to 3 machines as long as they all respond to the same domain.

Thanks for the imput though.
