I'm currently testing MySQL replication over SSL. I have two mysql-slave pairs. I would like to configure second slave server for each pair in different data centre:
Do I have to generate certificates for each master and slave server or can I use one certificate for all master servers and then create a new one for each client (slave server)?
According to the information from this link:
On the slave, you have two options available for setting the SSL information. You can either add the slave certificates to the [client] section of the slave's my.cnf file, or you can explicitly specify the SSL information using the CHANGE MASTER TO statement...
However when I add the certificate information to the MySQL configuration file (my.cnf) it's not working and I still have to specify them using "CHANGE MASTER TO" statement anyway?
