Secure Connections - Key/Certificate Management

Currently with Control Center a keystore and a truststore have to be setup in order to allow secure connections. Once both have been setup, the configCC.bat or has to be run in order to tell the Control Center application the path location of both of the stores. However, in an environment that has multiple Event Processors (EPs), if a server where a particular EP crashes/becomes unavailable, the other EP doesn't have that information. Copies of the stores have to be available on the other EP and then configCC.bat/sh has to be ran to update the location of the stores. In addition, the other EP would need to be stopped in order to run the configCC.bat/sh. Once Control Center has been restarted on the EP that is available, and all of the monitored servers are assigned, hopefully it has secure connections to the servers that require. There needs to be a better way to manage/handle a situation like this if it was to occur. Please let me know if I did not explain properly.
