AFAIK, you can only reset the password if you know the old one.
I would strongly recommend to revoke the old certificate and issue a new one.

Subject: [Openvpn-users] Changing password on certificate


Hi everyone,

I've got an issue where one of our user has forgotten is certificate 
password. The person who has created the certificate can't remember the 
password that was assigned to this certificate. ( I know, we'll put 
something in place to gather these passwords ;-)  ). My question:

Is there a way for root to reset the password with either OpenVPN or 
openssl without knowing the original one. We would rather not issue a 
new certificate.?

Thanks in advance,

Davis Goodman
