Can you post some of the configs you are using for 3 of the sites so 
we can perhaps spot the problem(s) you are having ? I have a similar 
setup with 5 sites, all talking to each other via IPSEC tunnels. Its 
a lot of policies, but they work just fine.

We have ~ 400 sites running OpenVPN across Canada that all reconnect 
just fine after reboots / power cycles etc.  We dont let the clients 
talk to each other, but that would just be a config change to allow 
that to work.
