Import RADIUS Server Certificate Error

We have recently added a new clearpass server to our cluster and are trying to import our radius cert after exporting from our publisher.  Now it is very possible that I have forgotten or did not set the Private Key Password correctly to what I normally use for cert passwords.  I am not convienced this is the issue, however is there any way to recover a Private Key Password via third party tools, etc?

 

Would there be any other reason that I am getting the below error message when importing my .crt and .pkey files from a our publisher Server?

Test the private key password via openssl.

Thank you Tim.  It looks like that is indeed the issue.  I have tried a number of passwords and none seem to work.

 

Is it safe to generate a new pkey file via openssl and would this work with the current .crt file?  Please forgive my ignorance in this area.

 

openssl rsa -des3 -in keyfilename -out newkeyfilename

No, you would need to get your certificate reissued from the CA with a new private key.
