Self Signed Certificate error


I am following along the Splunk docs to self sign a cert for my Splunk UI.

Every thing is going fine until I get to the command 

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk cmd openssl x509 -req -in mySplunkWebCert.csr -CA myCACertificate.pem -CAkey myCAPrivateKey.key -CAcreateserial -out mySplunkWebCert.pem -days 1095

I am getting "mySplunkWebCert.csr: No such file or directory"

Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with certs to trouble shoot this.

Any help appreciated.

Couple of questions

1. Have you created "mySplunkWebCert.csr" mentioned in the command?

2. From which directory, you are executing this openssl command? the certs will be stored in /opt/splunk/etc/auth

as @timsheets13 @said it’s best practices to use full or relative paths on those file names like ./dir/file.csr instead of file.csr
