Very well written article and thanks for sharing it. Some time back i was in a scenario where in a two node cluster environment, one of the node was able to communicate to the site communicating over https but the other won;t. There was no manual steps involved to add the cert to the node that was working. When we manually added the root cert to the application and to the java truststore things started to work. I am still trying to figure out why it worked on one of the node and not this one.
