Restrictions on Installing SSL Certificates on Load Balancers

The option to install an SSL certificate on a balancer is not available.

To use SSL certificates, you must install them on the servers that are assigned to the Load Balancer.After you install the SSL certificates, encrypted requests from Load Balancer SSL pass-through are forwarded to the assigned server. The requests are then decrypted on the servers.

Please note:
When you forward encrypted SSL requests using SSL pass-through to the server, the load balancer, the source IPs of requests can not capture in the log files.
