An explanation of systemd template files:

For you, you should:
cp -a /usr/lib/systemd/system/openvpn-client@.service /etc/systemd/system/openvpn-client@ibecker2.service
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl start openvpn-client@ibecker2.service
systemctl enable openvpn-client@ibecker2.service

I don't have a Fedora 27 system so I can't say exactly where your ibecker2.conf should go.
Probably in /etc/openvpn/client/ if you have that directory, else in /etc/openvpn/ .  Look in
/etc/systemd/system/openvpn-client@ibecker2.service for the ExecStart line.  For
Fedora 24 it's:
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/openvpn --daemon --writepid /var/run/openvpn/ --cd /etc/openvpn/ --config %i.conf
Which translates to /etc/openvpn/ibecker2.conf because the executable changes
the working directory to /etc/openvpn (--cd /etc/openvpn/).

interesting. Could you post the output of

rpm -ql openvpn|grep service

best regards
 rpm -ql openvpn|grep service 

[nbecker@nbecker2 xsimd]$ rpm --verify openvpn

Yes, those 2 files are there in /usr/lib/systemd/system
