Issue: client was trying to follow the http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2076665 and secure his esxi hosts from the heartbleed bug but when he was doing the step 3 of the article Run the command /sbin/generate-certificates to generate new certificates it use to throw an error
"warning can't open config file /usr/ssl/openssl.cnf"

Solution:
After installing all 3 patches
ESXi550-201404403-BG
ESXi550-201404401-SG
ESXi550-201404402-BG
which are a part of the ESXi550-201404001 Ignore error - certificate was successfully created.
