Easy-RSA generates empty *.req-File

Post by Anonymousssss » Fri Sep 27, 2019 10:32 am

Hello there,

I am having an issue with easyrsa generating an empty .req-File after running "$ easyrsa build-client-full <name>". The system then complaints that it does not see a valid request, which is obvious since the .req-file is empty for some reason:

Code: Select all

Verifying - Enter PEM pass phrase:
-----

Easy-RSA error:

The certificate request file is not in a valid X509 request format.
Offending file: /etc/ssl/easy-rsa3/easyrsa3/pki/reqs/<name>
In this case I don't even have an idea where to start to solve the issue. Any idea?

Best regards
Anonymousssss

Have you recently upgraded easyrsa ?

No, the underlying system received some maintenance, but easyrsa stayed, AFAIK, on the same version.
