Description Trevor McKay 2012-10-09 10:25:56 EDT
Description of problem:

The 'ln' command in the Appendix dealing with installing openssl certificates in the certs directory is missing a suffix in the link name.

Without a .# (. followed by a digit) openssl won't recognize the link to the certificate, and that certificate won't be usable for ssl connections from a client.

True both on RHEL 5 and RHEL 6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Revision 3.0-0

I can provide some content for this when I figure out the best way to repair the command.

patch for certificate hash generation instructions

Hmm, simple.  Looking more closely, the "some files may hash to the same value" instruction already shows the use of a suffix.  We just need a .0 in the first case.

So, something akin to this patch -- add the .0, change the verbage slightly.
