Can we install a wilcard ssl on multiple servers withing the same domain? If so, how do we use it for mail versus web, versus terminal server? Do I need to generate a new key for each server?

Per our service agreement our wildcard SSL certificates may be used for multiple sub domains however, they must all be hosted on the same server. If you are going to use separate servers you will require a certificate for each machine.

Thank you,

Actually using the same cert on different servers is a security issue. You would have to copy the private key from the original server (the one used to generate the cert) to the other servers and by definition it would no longer be private.

So it can be done, but it isn't a good idea.
