Cisco VPN Concentrator Drops out after Circuit Upgrade

I just upgraded our 2 T1s to a 10MB Metro Ethernet Circuit.  All went really well except that VPN was not working after the upgrade.  I power cylced the VPN Box and it came up and VPN was working, in the hour that it took me to drive home it stopped working again.  I upgraded to a 10MB Metro Ethernet from ATT and am using a CiSco VPN 3000 concentrator.  The upgrade kept the same IPs and everything.  I mad no changes.  Any thoughts on why this is happening.  I will be going out there to reboot the VPN again but what if it does not continue to work.  They changed the router to a Nortel Router.

Before rebooting can you see what the logs say?  Does it detect an interface drop?  Is the VPN where the two T1's terminated and is now where the 10MB cirtcuit terminates?  Is your VPN uses routing to determine the paths?
