bcfg2-admin: guess path to ssl key file

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: critical Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.4 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: bcfg2-admin Cc:


In general it would be useful to set the path of the key file to be the dirname of the bcfg2.conf file (e.g. when using -C /home/user/tmp/bcfg2/bcfg2.conf) instead of the hardcoded path /etc/bcfg2.key which is not useful under FreeBSD, ... .
