Creating a key in Openvpn


Hi all,
I had configured Openvpn(2.0.9) server On Centos Machine>its working fine.i had already created keys for clients.Now i want to create one more key for new client.When i tried the "./build-key user " command its showing
""Please edit the vars script to reflect your configuration,then source it with "source ./vars".Next, to start with a fresh PKI configuration and to delete any previous certificates and keys, run "./clean-all".Finally, you can run this tool (pkitool) to build certificates/keys."".

Is there Any way to add more keys without changing Existing keys.

thanks
Ajayan

Well, based on the documentation, and what you posted:
