VPNs won't come up on restored PIX

I've been wrestling with adding another IPSEC VPN on a PIX 506E with V6.3(5).  In the course of my struggles, I've somehow broken the existing IPSEC VPNs that were configured on this box.

I had enough sense to save the original configuration.  Today I erased the messed up configuration with a write erase command, manually configured the inside interface and reloaded that original configuration.  Everything works great expcept the original tunnels still won't come up.

Is there another step I need to do?

Thanks

Bill

The saved configuration probably had just an asterisk for the shared key.  You'll need to enter the proper shared key before the VPN will work.
