Pre-Shared key for remote peer missing

I am having a strange problem. I am trying to establish a site-to-site VPN between two Cisco routers (2951s). I am using the below config on both routers. One router has an interface with a public IP assigned to it, the other uses a private IP and is natted by our ASA outbound.

If i remove the tunnel protection ipsec profile command from the tunnel interface, the tunnel comes up no problem and I can ping both ends of the tunnel. But as soon as I apply the tunnel protection on the tunnel interface, it dies. Both sides of the tunnel show up but no pings are allowed and I see in the debugs that for some reason the routers don't think the Pre-Shared keys are configured properly. I have gone as far as making the ISAKMP keys very simple and I know there is something I'm missing here.

On the ASA i'm allowing ESP (protocol 50) and ISAKMP (UDP 500) both directions (in and out of the firewall). I am also allowing UDP NAT-T (4500) just in case. I don't see anything on the firewall being blocked but I can't be certain that isn't causing the problem. What could I be missing here?

Pre-Shared key for remote peer missing

Oh and one more thing, I forgot to mention the tunnel interface on the side using a Private IP address is also in a VRF. The source and destination of the tunnel are also in a vrf so the tunnel vrf command is issued on the tunnel.

interface tunnel 0

ip vrf forwarding COMCAST

ip address 10.254.10.10 255.255.255.0

tunnel source gi0/0

tunnel destination PUBLICIPHERE

tunnel vrf COMCAST

tunnel protection ipsec profile BACKUP_S2S

So if I remove the tunnel vrf COMCAST command I see the tunnel go into up-IDLE but I can't ping anything on the other side? Is there any special crypto configuration needed for vrf?

So I added this command which seems to have fixed the initial problem but I still can't ping between the two sides.

Pre-Shared key for remote peer missing

Ok so I actually figured it out myself and it is up and working now.  The first thing I was missing was the vrf aware crypto key commands:

crypto keyring COMCAST vrf COMCAST

  pre-shared-key address PUBLICIPHERE key cisco123

The second thing I was missing was to enable the mode transport on the transform-set:

crypto ipsec transform-set TRANSFORMSET_ASA_FFX esp-3des esp-sha-hmac

mode transport
