Sonicwall NSA 240 - using command line to modify existing VPN tunnel

I have a Sonicwall at a central datacenter that has VPN tunnels to several remote offices.  For some reason, I lose the ability to connect to the web interface until I restart the device.  So I'm trying to find a way to modify one of the existing VPN tunnels using the command line interface.  I would like to avoid having to restart the device to use the web interface, since that would temporarily disconnect all the tunnels to remote offices.  All I need to do is add a secondary gateway to one of the tunnels.  Does anyone know how to do that via command line?  It's the enhanced OS.

Thanks.

This article might help with the CLI.

Question, did you enable the management on the WAN interface and this is what stops responding? If so, do you have any HTTP or HTTPS NAT rules to an internal server on that sonicwall?

Found the answer with this link:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBYQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sonicwall.com%2Fapp%2Fprojects%2Ffile_downloader%2Fdocument_lib.php%3Ft%3DTN%26id%3D99&ei=oUW4TY7xE-Pn0QH0t6TcDw&usg=AFQjCNHY-7RBkgjLOvK2jDLQpH6GiyIGeg

It's the web management on any interface that stops responding.  I believe it to be a firmware issue.  I've had this problem on all sonicwalls that I bought at the same time.  Everthing still functions normally, but to get to the GUI I need to reboot the device.  Then after a while (sometimes same day) i can't get to the GUI anymore until the device is restarted again.  Very annoying...
