Opc.Ua.CertificateGenerator expected behavior

Post by smgehrig »


I am trying to implement certificate management with a GDS.
I have a client that is attempting to call CreateRequest to generate a CSR.

The issue I am running into is that the call throws an exception: "input file was not processed properly"

When checking the tmp file that gets generated by the command and called by opc.ua.certificategenerator, I notice that it does not change to contain "-requestFilePath"
It still has the original content starting with "-cmd request", hence the error.

I tried running the command opc.ua.certificategenerator.exe -f <path/to/tempfile> and it still did not work.
I am also not getting any errors or logs.

Are there any ideas as to why the certificategenerator is not working?
I have uploaded useful diagnostic info such as picture of the file, and the generator version.
*Edit - I don't see the attachments. I will manually enter them below
