Hi there,

You should be able to add more users by running the OpenVPN installer again:


From the menu choose option 1:

1) Add a new user and enter a client name

The output that you will get would look like this:

Looks like OpenVPN is already installed

What do you want to do?
   1) Add a new user
   2) Revoke an existing user
   3) Remove OpenVPN
   4) Exit
Select an option [1-4]: 1

Tell me a name for the client certificate
Please, use one word only, no special characters
Client name: your_user_here

This will generate a new .ovpn file, which you can copy to be new device.

This process also generates a few other files found in /etc/openvpn/server/easy-rsa/pki/, which make public key authentication possible.

EDIT 1: In case that you are using the Marketplace image, to create an additional client configuration run:

/root/ your_client_name_here

Hope that this helps.
