Consider following config saved under /etc/openvpn/server_example.conf:

user openvpn
group openvpn

When I run:

systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl restart openvpn
systemctl reload openvpn@server_example.service

It fails. When the user and group is not set, it work. How to make it working even if the user is set?

Configuration: Debian 9 with the latest OpenVPN from OpenVPN apt repo.
