Cisco Pix 515E Disable VPN

I have a client that uses a cisco pix 515e. I am using the cisco ASDM utility for configuration. They use the cisco vpn client and they have 2 site-to-site tunnels established as well. They don't want the site-to-site tunnels established all of the time so I tried unchecking the enabled box next to either one of them in the ASDM and when I click apply I get the following error message: Error in Sending Command
 [OK] group-policy GroupPolicy1 attributes
      group-policy GroupPolicy1 attributes
[ERROR] vpn-tunnel-protocol svc
vpn-tunnel-protocol svc
 % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

[OK] configure terminal

I need to know how I can disable a particular vpn without affecting another

What version of PIX code are you running?
Istvan KalmarHead of IT Security Division Commented:
I advise you tou disable the access-list which responsible for the vpn, it is easy to manage, if you know what time peridicly want to use check time the access-list timelist:

Configuration > Firewall > Access Rules

Configuration > Firewall > Objects > Time Ranges

pix version is 6.3. I would not have any problem just disabling the access-list but the customer is going to be doing this and they would like to be able to just uncheck the enable button next to the vpn tunnel
As a suggestion, you could script a solution to enable and disable the access list using telnet or ssh command line.    Have you given that any consideration?
