Hi Timm.

the reason for the scenario is to manage just 1x single conf file for all users (they auth via external plugins) e.g. 200 users using the same user conf file.

Thus i forsee the /30 being insufficient and would like the 'overflow' to switch to the next openvpn box(redundancy) automatically should they not get any IP from the svr1 (when depleted).

I don't know such tutorial, but you can simple manage more than one
subnet or transfer net.

One part of your clients can use 10.8.1.x, the next ones can use
10.8.2.x and so on. It's simple just run multiple instances of your
openvpn server with the equivalent config file.

IMHO that's the point why routing is scalable und bridging is not.
