Fix: CSR Generation - OpenSSL error: "Unable to load config info from"

Hi All,

The following error has been cropping up on OpenSSL 0.9.8 installs when the user is attempting to create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for the WLC:

OpenSSL> req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout mykey.pem -out myreq.pem

Unable to load config info from c:openssl/ssl/openssl.cnf

error in req

Fix:

Step 1 - Download a valid "openssl.cnf" configuration file

Step 2 - Save "openssl.cnf" to the same folder as your OpenSSL executable (ex openssl.exe)

Step 3 - Use the following command to kick off the CSR:

OpenSSL> req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout mykey.pem -out myreq.pem -config openssl.cnf

Don't forget to reference the following guide when creating a CSR, and chaining Certificates on the WLC:
