Upgrade broke vpn
I’m running a pfSense 2.3 on a ESXi host. I have 2 IPSec tunnels running, OpenBGP is not installed. So I tried to upgrade and without any issue after a few minutes I’m online again.
But now the big disappointment: my tunnels don’t come up again.
After many tries to make it work again I gave up and returned to the previous version, thanks to my backup.
And the point here is?? Did you want some help?
You wanted to rant? Not sure what kind of response your looking for with such a post? There is absolutely ZERO information that could help us even make a wild ass guess to what your problem was/is..
Sorry for the lack of information. It was just a statement. But help will be welcome to try upgrade again. I’m sorry not to have any logfiles. After several hours of trying I’m happy to be online again so I forgot to save some logs.
I hoped to get an answer to confirm that the lost of IPSec is a known issue.
The only thing I remember: my pfSense could exchange some data with the peer but never got established a connection, always stalls with status connecting and no further log entries.
I found entries like```
ipsec_starter: no netkey IPsec stack detected
ipsec_starter: no KLIPS IPsec stack detected
ipsec_starter: no known IPsec stack detected, ignoring!
and``` received retransmit of response with ID 0, but next request already sent
but I don’t know if the problem is one of theses messages.
Now I suceed. After give it another try, I could update and my tunnels are still working. I had to edit and save them new to get them online.
