[openssl-users] Help needed regarding x.509 keys for MQTT/Mosquitto

I try to generate x.509-keys for TLS/SSL operation with MQTT and 
Mosquitto and follow the Mosquitto TLS documentation:

Generate a certificate authority certificate and key.
     openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -extensions v3_ca -keyout ca.key 
-out ca.crt

Generate a server key.
     openssl genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024

Generate a certificate signing request to send to the CA.
     openssl req -out server.csr -key server.key -new

Send the CSR to the CA, or sign it with your CA key:
     openssl x509 -req -in server.csr -CA ca.crt -CAkey ca.key 
-CAcreateserial -out server.crt -days 365

The first two operations went well, but during the third, the signing 
request to the CA, I got the following error message:

OpenSSL> req -out server.csr -key server.key -new
problem creating object tsa_policy1=
5596:error:08064066:object identifier routines:OBJ_create:oid 
error in req

I have installed Win32OpenSSL 1.1.0, the big package.

It would be great, if somebody could give me a hint in order to solve 
this problem.

Many thanks in advance and best regards
