SSL Implementation for Azure Web Role RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm new to windows azure, and have few doubts about SSL implementation.

    I was reading the msdn and blogs on the net. Everywhere it is mentioned that to obtain the certificate from a CA, a CSR file has to be generate in IIS 7 running on Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Now my doubt is, Should I connect to the azure web role service using RDP and generate the CSR file using IIS?

    Secondly, after the CA is issued, we have to upload the pxf file into azure certificates folder. Now set the endpoints in VS, then package and upload. Now, when we increase the instances, I hope that SSL certificate issues wont pop up. As each instance has its own IIS, more instances.. more IIS servers running to manage the work load. But the CSR was generated for only a single IIS web server. How does this work?
