IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

Dears,

 

I have a site to site VPN between PAN 7.1.6 and Cisco ASA 8.2.5, I'm receiving a lot of Invalid SPI error. I tried to reset the VPN many times and still having the same issue. This issue by the way is casusing a lot of packet dropes in the VPN

 

 

'IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).'

 

Did any one faced a similer issue or have an idea on how to mitigate such issue ?

Re: IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

How are your proxy id's settings looks like? Are they matching? DPD setting  (timers) should also match. Can you please confirm this

L2 Linker

Re: IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

Proxy ID's are exactly matching ASA and i'm working with same Proxy ID's for Two years.

DPD, is disables on most of the Tunnels.

 

VPN tunnels with PAN in both side are ok and stable

only tunnels with ASA on the other side is haveving this flapping issue with INvaldi SPI error since yesterday.

Re: IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

nothing changed since yesterday. VPNs start flapping and making invalid SPI's suddenly. i tried many times to clear and re-initae phase1/2 and it is not solving the issues.

 

Below is the output of the debug

Re: IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

Enable the debug and reset the tunnel so all info will be captured:

 

> test vpn ipsec-sa tunnel (your tunnel to ASA)

 

Do you know if something is changed on the ASA  end?

Re: IKE protocol notification message received: INVALID-SPI (11).

i'm managing also ASA's and nothing changed on them.
