Does anyone know if it possible to have 2 solution Engines sharing a single, common self signed certificate generated by one of the Solution Engines? I have a certificate, actually two, that are about to expire. I am trying simplify the distribution and management by having just one certificate.

This is the process to share SSL certs:

But why do you want to do this anyway? They are self-signed certs anyway, you can generate them for as long as you like. Are you using it for some sort of end-user security like Wireless Encryption, NAC etc.?

The ACS generated Self Signed Certs are only valid for 1 year. As far as I know there is no way of generating one to last beyond a year unlike a cert obtained from a CA.

We are using the certs for WiFi PEAP clients.

Yes, that is possible. If you have the cert and pvk file you can upload it to any appliance.

You need to remember private key file as you need to retype it at the time of uploading it.
