ovpn-init failure

After running ovpn-init I am receiving the error "Could not initialize sa"

I installed openvpc-as.

My system is running fedora 26 as a server.
Any thoughts? I don't know where to begin.

I think it's not compatible with that version of fedora. You can try running an install on another supported OS, and then running ovpn-init on that system, and then copying the resulting files from the /usr/local/openvpn_as/etc/db/ folder to this installation and restart the Access Server service, to try to get around the initialization problem.

I was able to get it running. The issue turned out to be a missing 64 bit library. I'll have to dig though and find out specifically what one.

If anyone is running in this issue sa init actually depends on the internal sqlite3 binary.

On Amazon Linux 2 it was missing the libncurses.so.5 and libtinfo.so.5 provided by ncurses-compat-libs.
You can find the missing libs by using ldd sqlite3
