[Bug 1580356] [NEW] OpenVPN causes reboot failure on Xenial in AWS
(too old to reply)

Public bug reported:

The problem actually has to do with the way `systemd` is configured in
the latest version of Ubuntu 16.04. Setting up a typical OpenVPN
configuration, and rebooting causes a Instance Status check failure in
AWS EC2. The reason is because the file
`/lib/systemd/system/***@.service` is missing the following line:

After=network.target network-online.target

The entire [Unit] section then looks like:

[Unit]
Description=OpenVPN connection to %i
PartOf=openvpn.service
ReloadPropagatedFrom=openvpn.service
Before=systemd-user-sessions.service
After=network.target network-online.target
Documentation=man:openvpn(8)
Documentation=https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Openvpn23ManPage
Documentation=https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/HOWTO

This ensures that routes needed for OpenVPN configurations get called
after the main networking stack.

Scott, could you please provide some information about the routing/IP
configuration before the reboot?

Simon,

Sure. Would you prefer a Github Gist, or can I paste the outputs here
directly?

Simon,

Also, which commands do you want to see? Just `ip route` ?

If you could attach "ip addr" and "ip route" output here that would be
good, thanks.

Simon,

The setup I have is running two OpenVPN daemons on the same port (1618)
but on different protocols (TCP/UDP). The post that Chris made in the
AWS forum above had a much simpler, single virtual interface setup.

Thanks Scott. Could you also attach the OpenVPN configs since they
apparently don't match the gist [1].

Thanks

Greetings,

Any status on this? The thread I opened on the openvpn-user mailing list
has confirmed as well that this is an issue. See here:

Hi Scott,

I just finished migrating my VPN to Xenial. I cannot reproduce your
issue using a static IP configuration in /etc/network/interfaces. I'll
try to set things up with DHCP and see how it goes.

Simon,

Yes, the instance I used as a test was using DHCP. AWS is a bit odd in
that sense since, for all intents and purposes, your instance has a
static internal IP address that persists across reboots. However, the
instance thinks it's using DHCP. It would be as if you configured DHCP
on the OpenVPN server, but configured the LAN's DHCP server to assign
only one address to your OpenVPN server.

I confirm that the issue is present with the AMI Ubuntu image
20160516.1. I systematically reproduce it by

- launching an instance of the AMI image on EC2
- apt update ; apt install openvpn
- configuring the OpenVN server with any configuration (static key for instance https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/miscellaneous/78-static-key-mini-howto.html)
- enable OpenVPN at boot
- reboot

The instance fails to configure its network for the reason described by
the OP.

This link might be of interest:

<https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/NetworkTarget/>

Much of the same info can be viewed with

$ man 7 systemd.special

It seems that network-online.target should be used instead of
network.target. I think fixing this in openvpn.service instead of
***@.service should work, but I have not tried it, nor have I
actually tried reproducing this bug myself.

I tested that theory of modifying openvpn.service with network-
online.target to no avail. Can confirm this issue in ubuntu/images/hvm-
ssd/ubuntu-xenial-16.04-amd64-server-20160610 (ami-d06a90b0) as well.

Will try modifying ***@service as suggested by OP to see if that
resolves.

Doing as the OP suggested does work. the following modification of
lib/systemd/system/***@.service allows the AWS xenial instance to
reboot with openvpn service enabled

Upstream OpenVPN has two unit files, one for servers, one for clients:

<https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/ticket/462>
<https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/tree/master/distro/systemd>

Have you tested whether these unit files work better?

I can confirm the above reports as well as the description in #1595822.
OpenVPN is started too early in the boot process. Cloud-Init will default to configure tun0 instead of the guests main network interface via dhcp. This breaks the cloud-init process.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1598522

I have just tried <https://github.com/OpenVPN/openvpn/tree/master/distro/systemd>
It works OK, however, they assume that server configuration is in /etc/openvpn/server/<name>.conf, in current ubuntu package it is: /etc/openvpn/<name>.conf that is the only issue. Everything else is great. So if you take those files from upstream, ppl will have to change directory structure a bit, not sure if that is a big issue or not.

Is there a timeline for this fix? It seems like a pretty simple fix, and
it's a bit nerve-racking every time I have to reboot an OpenVPN server

I am the one who added the systemd unit files to upstream OpenVPN.
These files are now getting a few updates [1] and will ship as the
recommended unit files in the coming OpenVPN 2.4 release.

The OpenVPN team would appreciate if Ubuntu was shipping the upstream
version of these unit files. We try to make all systemd based
distributions use the same ones, as that gives less maintenance burden
on package maintainers as well as a consistent behaviour across all
distributions. Which again helps the support guys on #openvpn @
FreeNode when something isn't working.

With that said, I am happy to see that our versions resolves this issue.
If anyone is interested in helping out testing, fixing and improving
these unit files further, please do not hesitate getting in touch with
us on #openvpn-devel @ FreeNode.
