Reusing EFS for multiple systems

We have been utilizing an encrypted folder on a thumb drive with our users and exporting the encryption certificate onto another thumb drive for back up purposes. Is it possible to set up a master drive with an encryption certificate already in place and use it to clone other drives? Our boss wants to avoid having to create certificates for each individual system and just reuse the same certificate for all the systems being cloned. Will the system end up creating its own certificate anyway? Thank you for the help.

    I am not sure what your resulting debug would include, but it would be interesting "if" you could key the certificate to the domain thereby lightly securing company data in the event of drive loss?
