Disabling VPN Tunnels from trying to establish when NOT actually required

L2 Linker


We have several kits which we use for conferences as and when needed. These kits VPN back to us when alive. The problem is when the kits are sitting in the cupboard the Palo continues to try and bring the VPN tunnel up which fills our system log up and is a waste of resources as the endpoint is gathering dust in the cupboard. Is there anyway to temporarily disable a VPN tunnel so that it doesn't attempt to connect all the time? Similar to disabling a policy etc. I suspect not but thought I would ask. If not then it would be great to have this feature added at some point.

Many thanks

100% agree with you but for moment, it's not possible to desable a VPN. Just delete.

For sure FR exist for that, just ask you palo team to vote for it.

Hope help.
