Intermittent VPN issue

Good Day everyone.

Have a very intermittent site to site VPN issue.  Current environment is 9 locations, connected by private MPLS.

Management is R80.20

(8) clusters are R77.30

(1) cluster is R80.20

I have a mesh VPN community which has 8 locations in it.  The 9th location, where management resides is not part of the VPN community.

From time to time, i see a site become unreachable from one or more of the other VPN sites - the fix is to get to that cluster either directly, or via the non-VPN management server, and run vpn tunnelutil and "Delete all IPsec+IKE SAs for ALL peers and users" - that site becomes available immediately.

Any troubleshooting ideas - not knowing when it will happen, or how to trigger it makes setting up anything in advance difficult.

"permanent tunnels" is not turned on - would that setting add value here?

Looks like this may be the case.

Allways when you use Check Point to Check Point tunnels turn on the Permanent tunnels and set the community to 1 tunnel per gateway pair.

This will makes sure your tunnels remain solid, so far I have never seen problems like these when we apply these settings.

Thanks for the info.  I have made the change to permanent tunnels, hopefully this will resolve the issue.
