SSL Certs on an IIS web farm?

We've got two servers setup as a web farm.  We're migrating from a single server to this web farm, on the single server we have a couple of ssl certs.  If I understand it correctly the cert is linked to the site's name and the ip address.

Are we going to need a cert on each server that makes up the web farm?

The ip address assigned to the site will be moved over to the web farm and added using the NLB Manager, then we'll use IIS to bind it to the site.

Web farm is made up of two Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7.5.  Single server is Windows 2003, and IIS 6.

SSL certs are tied to a domain name. You can export the certificate from your current server and import it onto your new servers in your farm, just be sure to export the private key as well.

You can do this with the certificates MMC snap in. Select local computer certificate store then expand personal > certificates. Right click your cert and go to export. Make sure you export the private key. On your new farm, in IIS on the security tab you should be able to import the certificate.
