VPNs expire with CRL every 30 days #1883

I noticed that every 30 days the VPN clients would not be able to connect. The OpenVPN logs state "error=CRL has expired".

This lead me to look at the CRL:
openssl crl -text -noout -in /var/lib/zentyal/CA/crl/latest.pem

Two fields is particular stuck out:
Last Update: xxx
Next Update: xxx + 1 month

And sure enough those dates and times aligned with when things worked and stopped working. So I wanted to change that update to be >30 days (3650 should do me).

I edited /var/lib/zentyal/conf/openssl.cnf and changed the CRL default time:
default_crl_days= 3650 # how long before next CRL

I now have a fairly length time before I am forced to re-evaluate my CRLs.
