Ipfire migration failure with OpenVPN to new VM

Hello everyone, I have IPFire running a couple of years ago in a Hyper-V VM, I activated OpenVPN with 200 users, everything was working great, until I had to change the VM to a new server, also Hyper-V.
The problem is that the new VM does not recognize the certificates of the VPN that was already working.

Is there a way to keep the VPN certificates that were working, without having to change all the certificates?

Hi @cpasten

If you installed IPFire on the new vm and then restored a backup from the old system then the certificates including the ca etc should have been restored as well and everything should have worked.

What do you mean when you say that the vm does not recognise the certificates. What error message are you getting and is it from IPFire or from the vm
