I have Fedora Directory Server installed on F9 box (fedora-ds-base-1.1.3-2.fc9.x86_64). Due to sum bug i guess , i am unable to create the certificate request through Console that is
Directory Server->Manager Certificates-> Request -> Request Certificate Manually.
In the Server Name:dhcp7-92.example.com
Organization: Example, Inc.
State/Province: North Carolina
Country/Region: US United States
Click on Show DN and i remove all the double quotes and my DN looks as below
CN="dhcp7-92.example.com, O=Example, Inc., L=Raleigh, ST=North Carolina, C=US
When i click on Next it says "Unable to convert DN to certificate name
So i tried with certutil command.
$certutil -R -s "C=US, ST=North Carolina, L=Raleigh, O=Example, Inc., CN=dhcp7-92.example.com" -o mycert.req -d .
I got the below output
certutil -s: improperly formatted name: "C=US, ST=North Carolina, L=Raleigh, O=Example, Inc., CN=dhcp7-92.pnq.redhat.com"
Now if i modify it as "certutil -R -s "C=US, ST=North Carolina, L=Raleigh, O=Example, CN=dhcp7-92.pnq.redhat.com" -o mycert.req -d ."
The same with the console i.e If Organization title is modified from "Example, Inc. " to "Example" it works.
So the space and period symbol in (Example, Inc.) is an issue ?
But this doesn't happen when i create certifcate requests with openssl commands.
