Server? You should not need to configure server certificate (and
certainly not the server private key) for the client. Anyway, the
"errors" here are actually warnings. wpa_supplicant/eapol_test asks
OpenSSL to first load the file as a DER file and that fails since you
are using PEM format. When OpenSSL is asked to load the data in PEM
format, that goes through without problems. In other words, the log you
sent did not indicate any real problems.
