Default error after entering pass phrase

after I enter the pass phrase I get this error.
HTML Code:
[root@server1 named]# mkdir /etc/postfix/ssl
[root@server1 named]# cd /etc/postfix/ssl/
[root@server1 ssl]# openssl genrsa -des3 -rand /etc/hosts -out smtpd.key 1024
242 semi-random bytes loaded
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for smtpd.key:
Verify failure
User interface error
4033:error:0906906F:PEM routines:PEM_ASN1_write_bio:read key:pem_lib.c:331:
Thank you for your help. P.S. I am using puTTY to cut and past command so I will not make a typo error.
