so now I Have recieved cert in pfx format and password

Pleas clarify my following questions:

I navigated inetmgr and in the IIS I gave chosen media site —-> bindings —> edit —-> 

Question 1 : 
There host name it’s showing default url name in the binding
And under SSL I have chosen internal url and binded, is it correct method please confirm ? 

2nd question: 

Do we need to update this new cert  in all servers in farm ? 

3rd question:

If one of the cert updated completely wrong in 2 servers, I mean I noticed different web application url itself is there  under SSL certificate from bindings  ( provided host name is same as per screenshot) can we expect insecure error ? because I am seeing 


But in first question site name under ssl certificate is another url of alternate access mapping

    Hi sns ,

    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    Yes, your steps are correct. This operation is required after importing the certificate.

    All servers need to be imported and updated.

    I found some articles that should give you some inspiration:
