MDC OAM Cert Mode configuration questions

Have 2 servers in DC1 with hostname oam1dc1.example.com and oam2dc1.example.com and 2 servers in DC2 with hostname oam1dc2.example.com and oam2dc2.example.com

1) In http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52734_01/oam/AIAAG/GUID-B4BD3B40-24BC-489E-815F-5296BBF5D185.htm#AIAAG89391 it does not explain how to Configuring Cert Mode Communication for Access Manager in each DC in case of MDC. (Here is situation is MDC is configured using open mode and now we want to reconfigure MDC in cert mode).

a) If we configure DC1 server in cert mode as per http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52734_01/oam/AIAAG/GUID-1F3D33A0-0525-4470-947F-4C55CC1A93CE.htm#AIAAG2100
Can we use the same certificate to configure DC2 server cert mode or we need to repeat the same steps and generate a new certificate for DC2?

b) Need explanation step 8 in http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52734_01/oam/AIAAG/GUID-B4BD3B40-24BC-489E-815F-5296BBF5D185.htm#AIAAG89391

2) What should be the Common Name to be entered while Generating a Certificate Request and Private Key for OAM Server?

Refer Step 1 on http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52734_01/oam/AIAAG/GUID-1F3D33A0-0525-4470-947F-4C55CC1A93CE.htm#GUID-1F404BCD-D0CE-4C8E-856C-D36809E7CB41 for steps to Generating a Certificate Request and Private Key for OAM Server. It does not say what should be the Common Name to be entered in case of cluster and MDC.

3) Also while creating Certificate Request for webgate, what should be the Common Name to be used. Is it the hostname of oam server or hostname of the webserver where an agent is deployed? Again what should be the Common Name if a single agent profile is shared by 2 webgate instances?

Refer step 1 on http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E52734_01/oam/AIAAG/GUID-1F3D33A0-0525-4470-947F-4C55CC1A93CE.htm#AIAAG5627 It does not say what should be the Common Name to be entered
