We are having this issue with Azure VWAN S2S VPN gateway, specifically with instance 0 of the Azure VPN gateway (they run them in active/active pairing). Instance 1 has been working without issue. Rebooting our HA pair of 3050's, I can bring the VPN tunnel up, however that does not last and it will begin failing after a few hours. Weirdly, out of 4 sites we have with 3050's in HA pairing, only 2 of the sites are having issues with Azure VPN instance 0. PA software version 9.0.9 across all sites, managed with Panorama. Involving PA support now and I will report back if we find a resolution.

Sharing another update here. Microsoft support identified that the issue, currently, is that IKE traffic destined for Azure VPN gateway instance 0 is being received on instance 1. They insisted that the issue was with routing on our end, however they provided packet captures proving that the traffic had the destination public IP for instance 0, yet was being received by instance 1. We're leaning towards a Microsoft/Azure routing issue. More to come.

Last update, and the ultimate resolution on our end. We tore down and deleted the S2S VPN gateway on the Azure VWAN side, as well as removed the problematic tunnels from the PA side. Once it was re-deployed, the new VPN gateway instances had new public IPs, so I setup all 8 of our tunnels (4 sites, 2 tunnels per) using the new peering IPs and it has been stable since. I know anyone who's already running production traffic out to Azure will need a couple hour maintenance window to do this, so it may not be the answer you were looking for, but we luckily hadn't migrated production traffic over it yet.


Anyone who is facing this issue and may not have the time to do a complete re-deploy, I would urge you to have Azure/Microsoft run packet captures to see if there is a routing issue on the Azure side where packets for one instance are somehow arriving at the other instance. I never heard back from our engineer if he was able to find anything as we just proceeded with the re-deploy, but all signs were pointing to that. Hope this helps someone encountering issues with Azure VWAN!

Ope. I forgot to include the part that started this whole thread. Once this was fixed, I did see the 'vendor id payload ignored' error messages disappear from our ikemgr.log.

This could be a authentication issue, please check the pre shared key once again.
