After reconfiguring a l2l tunnel between two ASA 5505s the local identity on peer A is incorrect and is configured as the old identity. This is also true on peer 2: it sees peer A with the incorrect identity.

Peer A: sh crypto ipsec sa peer 171.x.x.x
local ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (
      remote ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (x.x.x.x/
      current_peer: 171.x.x.x

should be

local ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (
      remote ident (addr/mask/prot/port): (x.x.x.x/
      current_peer: 171.x.x.x

Is there a way to reset the identity, preferably without rebooting the ASAs?
