Description

When exporting an OpenVPN configuration, only the CA immediately above the server's certificate is included. If that is an intermediate CA, then the client is then unable to verify the server's certificate and the connection fails.

I suggest that it should instead export a .crt file with the entire certificate chain back to the root CA, returning an error if it doesn't have the entire CA chain in it's database.

(In my situation, I have a company CA, used to sign an intermediate CA for pfSense, which is used to sign the OpenVPN server certificate.)
