Hey All,

I've just started using Alpine Linux for my router. Migrating from BSD land. I've run into some issues with OpenVPN ignoring UP script. Details:

i've got two client instances of OpenVPN running and both have their corresponding up / down scripts. Keeping in line with alpine enforced naming convention I've named

instance 1 up / down scripts

openvpn.int1-up.sh
openvpn.int1-down.sh

instance 2 up / down scripts
openvpn.int2-up.sh
openvpn.int2-down.sh

Problem is that the instance 2 fails to executes the up script, instance 1 works as expected. I have to restart the second instance to get the up script to work after boot.

Any pointers will be helpful.

Thanks

you should use : rc-update add local
than put your scripts inside /etc/local.d/ :

like they explain here (https://forum.alpinelinux.org/comment/543#comment-543)
