[Openvpn-users] private_key:key values mismatch

I set up my certificates exactly as describes at: http://openvpn.net/howto.html#pki
The Organizational Unit Name I left empty (not mentioned in tutorial).

I used the sample server configuration file with the following changes:

dev tap
dev-node tap-bridge

Now I get the following error message:

Sun Oct 09 13:48:47 2005 OpenVPN 2.0.2 Win32-MinGW [SSL] [LZO] built on Aug 25 2
Sun Oct 09 13:48:47 2005 Diffie-Hellman initialized with 1024 bit key
Sun Oct 09 13:48:47 2005 Cannot load private key file server.key: error:0B080074
:x509 certificate routines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch
Sun Oct 09 13:48:47 2005 Error: private key password verification failed
Sun Oct 09 13:48:47 2005 Exiting

I created the server.key and certificates 5 times now and I always get this error.

What am I doing wrong?

tahnk you,
