What i am doing wrong? The creation of my certificates for EAP/TLS with
CA.all or CA.certs always end with an message like this:

Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:State or Province Name (full name)
[Some-State]:Locality Name (eg, city) []:Organization Name (eg, company)
[Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:Common
Name (eg, YOUR name) []:Email Address []:
Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
A challenge password []:An optional company name []:Using configuration from
./demoCA/serial: No such file or directory
error while loading serial number
3164:error:02001002:system library:fopen:No such file or
3164:error:20074002:BIO routines:FILE_CTRL:system lib:bss_file.c:278:
Failed to do sign certificate
radius:/usr/local/etc/raddb/certs #

So i looked for the serial file. But it dosn´t exist. I think because of an
earlier message:
