you need to ensure all the old stuff is gone..

cd $place/raddb/certs
make clean
make destroycerts

edit ca.cnf, server.cnf and client.cnf to ensure that
everything matches and expects the same organisation etc
then you can re-run the bootstrap and it'll be fine
(or should be!)

PS this is for a modern version - eg 2.1.6
