Unknown cert type 'server'

Post by borman/m » Fri Mar 29, 2019 8:35 pm

I'm having difficulty figuring out how to have easyrsa create a signed certificate
I've run the following commands
easyrsa.real init-pki
easyrsa.real build-ca nopass
easyrsa.real build-server-full openvpn-server nopass
But this is the error when I try to run it.

Using SSL: openssl OpenSSL 1.0.2r-freebsd 26 Feb 2019

Easy-RSA error:

Unknown cert type 'server'
______________________________________________________
openvpn 2.4.7
freebsd 11.2 Stable
The x509-types directory in to be located in the same directory as the 'easyrsa' script.
Any ideas of what I could be doing wrong?

easyrsa under FreeBSD?

muchas gracias :mrgreen:

I think people should not use Free--bla, if they don't understand how it works

Or people could, at least, try to read the excellent docs these projects offer.

What version of EasyRSA is installed? You can get this will `pkg info`, something like:

Code: Select all

ecrist@terrance:~-> pkg info easy-rsa | grep Version
Version        : 3.0.5_1

root@:/usr/local/etc/openvpn/easy-rsa # pkg info easy-rsa | grep Version
Version : 3.0.5_1
It's worked after adding an absolute path in var file:
set_var EASYRSA_EXT_DIR "/usr/local/etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/x509-types"
set_var EASYRSA_SSL_CONF "/usr/local/etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/openssl-easyrsa.cnf"

original:
set_var EASYRSA_EXT_DIR "$EASYRSA/x509-types"
set_var EASYRSA_SSL_CONF "$EASYRSA/openssl-easyrsa.cnf"
