site to site tunnel not autostarting

hi all,
i have a site to site issue where, whenever the dsl line goes down and comes back online, my site to site tunnel does not get re established automatically.  i had to reboot the asa5506 and ping a device at the other end then, then the tunnel re establishes.

Hi,
i believe that in your case rebooting ASA is useless ...
should the tunnel get orphan and need to renegotiate parameters with the other end, you might want to issue
clear crypto isakmp sa

but you probably just need to wait for interesting traffic to come up (i.e. pinging some device).

I guess vpn does not come up automatically because DSL data line still experimenting problems: by the time you wait for asa to reboot it may well be that data line gets more stable.

hope this helps

LVL, thanks!

your are right rebooting is useless... but in this case, after 4hrs since the dsl stabalized, tunnel is still down.  Even pinging a device from each site does not seem to bring the tunnel back up hence the asa reboot.

before rebooting, you should take note of:
sh isakmp sa
and see in which state It is.

then you should run
debug crypto isakmp
debug crypto ipsec

and see what happens on console.

I would also enable DPD if it is not enabled.
