Disable an IPSec Tunnel

Not applicable

I want to disable an IPSec VPN. I have currently blocked traffic both directions to the tunnel by using a Security Policies, but there should be a way to disable the tunnel in the IPSec configuration (or alternatively, disable the tunnel interface). I don't want to delete it, but I don't want it taking up processor speed for a tunnel that I don't want turned on.

I agree that this would be a nice feature. I ran into an issue a couple of days ago where the VPN link between our PA and a Cisco ASA died after a software upgrade on the PA. I had no way kick start the PA to get it to retry making a connection to the remote site. I had to go into the CLI to do this. Having buttons on the GUI to be able to test the link or reset the link would be handy.

I also noticed that the link status never even updated when the link went down, which is concerning.
