Description Milan Kerslager 2008-04-04 10:29:31 EDT
The serial number of the certificate must be different or Firefox refuses to
show a page that is transferred by SSL with another certificate with the same
serial number. See bug #151190.

Please create an input field to write down a serial number in genkey program.

Thanks for the report; this seems reasonable.
Comment 6 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-09-19 17:53:24 EDT
This bugzilla was reviewed by QE as a non-FasTrack request.
It has since been proposed for FasTrack. The qa_ack has 
been reset. QE needs to re-review this bugzilla for FasTrack.
Comment 19 Joe Orton 2013-03-13 12:39:29 EDT
The current genkey in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 applies a random serial number to generated certs; we have no plans to add this feature in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 - please consider upgrading.
