OpenVPN on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS - Change Network From 10.0.8.x

Hi

I need to change the network that is assigned to clients when they join my OpenVPN.

I've set it up for a specific client device but have now been told that its doc says "Warning! The subnets 10.11.0.0/16, 10.8.0.0/16, 10.23.0.0/16 must not be used for the Client VPN!"

I am using Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, but am not fully conversant with it (although I've run the various Getting Started scripts ok and it all works properly). Nothing else is connected to the OpenVPN yet so I am happy to make ip address range changes.

Thanks!

10.0.8.x is more commonly written as 10.0.8.0/24
when you compare this with "the Docs"..? what ever those may be, you will see this is different from 10.11.0.0/16 , 10.8.0.0/16, 10.23.0.0/16
if all netmask are made even then your 10.0.8.0/24 is within the subnet 10.0.0.0/16 (10.0.x.x)  and that is clearly different from the "forbidden" range... ie. in this case no change needed.
