Upgrade OpenVPN Users

Most upgrades do not impact connected OpenVPN users. In some cases, OpenVPN service needs to be restarted as part of software upgrade. For example, upgrading to a new SSL version for security patch. In these cases, connected OpenVPN users are disconnected and need to reconnect after the upgrade. If a release requires stopping and restarting the service, the information is included in the release notes.

Rollbacks do disrupt services. If there is only one OpenVPN gateway in service, all user connections are lost and users cannot reconnect until the gateway is available. If there are other OpenVPN gateways available, the disconnected users can attempt to log in again and land on the available gateways.
