They are generated by 'pvecert' if they don’t exists (usually at first boot, or when you delete them).

When you join a node, they are copied from the master - please check why that fails for you.

pveca calls  PVE::Cluster::cluster_sync_mastercfg() to do that.

You also need to copy pve-root-ca.pem. The run

# pvecert --force

to regenerate ssl keys.
