I'm really quite desperate.

Does anybody have an idea where I'm going wrong ?

I'm unable to add clients.

Charles.

According to this thread this can happen if you try to create a new certificate with the same common name as another one or if your DB got corrupted so that you are assigning a duplicate serial number.
