-If you want to run the server as a daemon on system boot, it's necessary to remove the pass-phrase from the server1.key file first.  Don't forget to set permissions on the key to avoid it being world-readable. 
-# cd /etc/openvpn/keys 
-# openssl rsa -in server1.key -out tmp.key 
-# mv tmp.key server1.key 
-# chmod 600 server1.key
