Exchange 2010 SSL Certificates (UCC)

Currently we are deploying exchange 2010 with three servers: SERVER1 hosting Hub and the transport roles, SERVER2 hosting  mailbox role, and EDGE1 hosting the edge role.
We have to order a Third party SSL certificate (UCC) and the instructions is to install it in the CAS server. In our case I would assume it is SERVER1. However, I check under server configuration the default Exchange Self-Signed certificate is hosted by SERVER2.
Where the new SSL certificate should be installed?

thank you in advance for your help

You install the cert on the first server, export it and import it onto the others.

Are you reffering SERVER1 instead of SERVER2 (Default location for the self-signed certificate)?

You will end up installing it on all three. The cert will be the same and it does not matter which you install to first.

I install to the main server first and export down in priority.
