How are SSL certs handled in a clustered environment?

I'm looking to cluster two SA4500's in active/active mode. The first SA is configured already with 250 users and an IVS license. I have configured multiple (5) virtual systems that all have their own valid SSL certificate issued to them. When I cluster the two devices I plan on using weighted DNS for resolution. Since the SSL certs were created from cert requests genereated from the first SA, if someone were to hit the second SA (after they are clustered) will they recieve an invalid cert notification?

That is correct. If you want to run active/active you will have to generate the private keys on another system(linux/unix box) and then import the certs into both of the SA boxes.
