I know this is a super old thread, but any chance the linked document still lives someplace?
We have our own CA and all window clients have a valid cert. I just need to see how to make the ovpn file so it uses the local cert and not an embedded one.

Indeed, the CN isn't required to be the FQDN. So a workaround is to put something other than what I want in there to accomodate technology limitations... but I don't like being limited by technology :-)
