For some reason the security association the building block for VPN phase negotiations is dying; the log message indicates that the state changed from dying to dead.

What other logs you get in traffic monitor; there should be a reason why the tunnel is dying. Do you ever get the VPN tunnel up.

Please provide more details.

Thank you.
