Bluid-ca does not generate any cert

Post by zx81 » Sun Apr 02, 2017 11:07 am

Hi

OpenVPN 2.3 (same after upgrade to 2.4), I have six certs generated and running fine but now I want generate a new one and don't know why the process stops after I introduce the email:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\easy-rsa>vars

C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\easy-rsa>build-ca TEST
WARNING: can't open config file: /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf
Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
.............................................++++++
................................................................................
......++++++
writing new private key to 'keys\ca.key'
-----
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
-----
Country Name (2 letter code) [ES]:
State or Province Name (full name) [MA]:
Locality Name (eg, city) [Madrid]:
Organization Name (eg, company) [COMPANY]:
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) [IT]:
Common Name (eg, your name or your server's hostname) [HOSTNAME]:TEST
Name [HOSTNAME]:TEST
Email Address [soporte@test.com]:test@test.com

C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\easy-rsa>
Any hint?
