SSL Certificates

SSL certificates cannot be installed on load balancers.

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

Please note:
If you forward SSL-encrypted requests to the server using SSL pass-through, the load balancer cannot enter the source IPs of the requests in the log files.
