New VPN effects on existing VPNs

L0 Member

I am very new to Palo Alto administration, having been a Checkpoint guy at my previous job. At my new job I am tasked with creating a new IPsec site to site VPN with a vendor on our perimeter firewall. There are already several other VPNs running. My question is, when I set up the new VPN, will it have any effects on currently running processes, like a service restart or anything of that nature? My current company is very risk averse, so I don't want to be the "new guy" and create an outage, even if brief.

Creating a new VPN won't have any affect on your existing tunnels as long as you don't introduce any routing issue when configuring the new route(s) for the process. Otherwise the creation of the new VPN does absolutely nothing to the established IPSec tunnels.
