Create a Service - OpenMediaVault/Debian

I've installed OpenVPN on OpenMediaVault and got it working after much hassle. It doesn't start as a service though.

I'd expect to be able to do
service openvpn start
however it says
openvpn: unrecognized service
How can I create it/add it as a service please.

Fixed it!

I copied my working /etc/init.d/openvpn file from my laptop to the computer and then did update-rc.d openvpn defaults and hey presto it worked!
