Here's the run by, yes I have done research on all of what I am about to say. I simply wish to summarize it and hope someone with knowledge on this can let me know if something is wrong with my plan of action.
- I am going to purchase a wildcard ssl certificate from either Comodo or RapidSSL.
- I am going to generate the csr, upload it to them, get my certificate and install it to tomcat.
- Here's where I am worried, I am going to create an Azure Virtual Machine Image to duplicate the VM with my tomcat web app and the installed ssl. I will end up soon having up to 20 Virtual Machines based on that same image with the same tomcat application, same keystore, same certificate, but simply a different url pointing to the Azure CNAME server. Do you all see any problem with #3?
Can the same keystore and certificate be on multiple servers with an image, or will I have a problem with this process?
