OpenVPN: daemon not restarted on changes to "openvpn-option" CLI node
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG

Description

Also reported by @dmbaturin on one of out meetings.

Changing, adding, removing to openvpn-config CLI node is not respected. A change to this node requires OpenVPN to be restarted as these options are passed via systemd.

Thus when adding a new option it is not activated until OpenVPN daemon is restarted (by reboot or manually)
