It sounds like you're set up for a serious failure if you are expected to admin
machines that you can't access...

If you don't want to setup a full CA (and I agree, openssl isn't the whole
thing), have you considered cacert.org?  They issue free certs from their CA,
and assuming you're willing to trust them (which I would for relaying
purposes), they seem to handle the gnarly bits.
