Severity: 3-Major


-- IPsec tunnel does not start. -- Remote IPsec networks unavailable.


IPsec tunnel is down permanently.


-- Using IKEv1 and one of the following: + Performing an upgrade. + IPsec tunnel reconfiguration generally involving a change to, or addition of, a traffic-selector.


-- Reconfigure or delete and re-create the traffic selectors associated with the IPsec tunnel that does not start. Special Notes: -- This occurs rarely and does not happen spontaneously, without intentional changes (reconfiguration or upgrade). -- A BIG-IP reboot or a restart of tmipsecd does not resolve this condition. -- This symptom might also occur due to a genuine misconfiguration. -- After major version upgrades, default ciphers can change, double-check the encryption and authentication ciphers for the tunnel.
