Subject [users@httpd] Error when creating certificate in HPUX
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 12:52:46 GMT

 Im trying to find solution for this issue. When running the command below 

openssl genrsa -des3 -out 1024

to create the key pair certificate, it gives me the error:

 warning, not much extra random data, consider using the -rand option
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
26995:error:24064064:random number generator:SSLEAY_RAND_BYTES:PRNG not seeded:md_rand.c:503:You
need to read the OpenSSL FAQ,
26995:error:04081003:rsa routines:RSA_BUILTIN_KEYGEN:BN lib:rsa_gen.c:183:

Please, any idea on wot´s going on? This is a production machine, Im in touch with the SA,
I wont be able to perform tests, reallocate files, etc.

Please your prompt attention.
Thank you
