Using OpenSSL on SAN switch to generate private key and CSR file

Secure customer wants to enable HTTPS access to the SAN switch.

They will only accept the use of Windows certreq.exe utility or openssl, to generate the Private Key and Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file, using a specific configuration file template.

Can I use openssl directly on a SAN switch to generate the key and CSR file (as the root user), once I have transferred the configuration file to the switch?

Does the seccertutil already use openssl to generate the public/private key and CSR file?

If so, where can I put the supplied configuration file to ensure it is used by the seccerutil command?

Thanks,
