|I am running an OpenVPN server and suddenly it is denying connections, claiming that the certificate has expired when they are good through 2023. I verified my certificates were valid on both the client and server using openssl x509 -in whatever.crt -dates -noout and everything is valid. Heck, the CA is good through 2030! When I try connecting however, I get this.

What is going on? The date and time on both the OpenVPN server AND the clients (my laptop and my Galaxy Note 9) are correct.
My God, I can be a dunce sometimes. I was troubleshooting this in a hurry. I just realized that the CRL expired. Why? No clue. Either way I just have to generate a new one and upload it to the server. Sorry for the trouble. Nothing to see here...
Ever picture systemd as what runs "The Borg"?
