OpenVPN startup on FC15

I have not figured out why this is happening - but:

> service openvpn start
doesn't work
chkconfig | grep openvpn
openvpn 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
rebooting doesn't work
> runlevel N 3

/etc/rc.d/init.d/openvpn start

does work.

Would like to understand why reboot and the service command fail.

Re: OpenVPN startup on FC15

There's another thread about this. A quick search should turn it up.

Long answer short is:
Drop a "systemctl restart openpvn@WhatEverConfig.service" into rc.local.
