ESXi appliance - certs & file locations

Post by paradoxum » Mon Nov 16, 2020 9:45 am

Greetings,

I'm new to OpenVPN. I have the OpenVPN AS virtual appliance up and running on ESXi. I wish to use cert based authentication between the server and clients. I've generated the certs, but but I see no way of importing Client certs and keys through the Appliance Web Console. Looking at the standard install of AS, the certs should be placed in /etc/openvpn but this directory does not exist in the VM version. SImilarly I cannot find where the server config file is located. Help!

Thanks,

P

Looks like the appliance stores its config in /usr/local/openvpn_as/etc/as.conf
This also points to the clients certs being stored in a sqllite DB. Still not clear how to add certs to the DB.
