IKEv2 SAs: Status:UP-IDLE FDM on FMC to Azure S2S VPN stops after 1 hr

Hi All

I have a Firepower 1140 on FMC, I configured a tunnel to Azure VPN GW, and the tunnel goes up, after exactly 1 hour it goes into IDLE state.. the lifetime settings are the same on both sides, I have a similar FTD managed box with the same connection parameters that connects to the same S2S with no issues! (we failover to the other machine when needed) 

The tunnel goes up only after I issue a command to reset it: clear crypto ikev2 sa <ip of Azure VPN GW>

The FMC throws this error in the dashboard: VPN Status Azure-VPN - VPN Tunnel between LOCALFW1/outside-static-ip/xx.xx.xx.xx/192.168.160.0 and Extranet Device/xx.xx.xx.xx/10.1.0.0 is inactive due to IKE Delete.

This is when up and working:

> show isakmp sa

There are no IKEv1 SAs

IKEv2 SAs:

Session-id:37, Status:UP-ACTIVE, IKE count:1, CHILD count:1

Tunnel-id Local Remote fvrf/ivrf Status Role

remote selector 10.1.0.0/0 - 10.1.15.255/65535
ESP spi in/out: 0xa5854000/0x1fa4000

And this when IDLE:

As a workaround we ended up scripting a code to kill the session so it reestablishes itself.. and a ticket is open with Cisco to see why this is happening..

Hello, 

just a thought: one of the IPSec options is, as far as I recall, the kilobytes lifetime:

Lifetime (kbytes)
The volume of traffic (in kilobytes) that can pass between IPsec peers using a given security association before it expires. The default is 4,608,000 kilobytes. Infinite data is not allowed.

You might want to check if that is the same on both devices, or change the value...

Hi Georg, the value is set to a higher number same as on the working Firewall configuration.. this on the other side it should be ok..
