Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/openvpn from 'name_connect' accesses on the tcp_socket .

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (47.5 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow nis to enabled
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'nis_enabled' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P nis_enabled 1

*****  Plugin catchall_boolean (47.5 confidence) suggests  *******************

If you want to allow openvpn to can network connect
Then you must tell SELinux about this by enabling the 'openvpn_can_network_connect' boolean.
You can read 'None' man page for more details.
Do
setsebool -P openvpn_can_network_connect 1

*****  Plugin catchall (6.38 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that openvpn should be allowed name_connect access on the  tcp_socket by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
Do
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep openvpn /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Seems to fix the problem for you.  Is openvpn setup to send email?
