How to set up a Virtual VPNC in central

    Posted Apr 10, 2024 01:47 PM

    I am at a gridlock trying to test a virtual gateway on my home ESXi lab. I configured the VGW identical to my 9004 with the only difference being that I will be using a different internet provider and a different LAN subnet. The VGW runs the same software 10.5.1.0_89166. I chose the L3 solution.

    Towards the 9004 everything works, the tunnel comes online and I can ping servers in my internal network.

    On the Virtual Gateway I am unable to set up an IPSEC tunnel. It seems that IPSEC is not operational but I am uncertain how to test this.

    While reviewing Aruba Central I did notice some differences between the 9004 and the new virtual gateways:

    • In overview the device, while being only is not registering uptime
    • The control option is UP however there are no interfaces registered 
    • WAN interface menu is empty

    • LAN interface menu is empty

    • The Microbranch show two tunnels but the tunnel to the VGW never sends anything back.

    Anyone has some suggestions?

    did you use this manual VGW deployment procedure?

    Yes I did follow that procedure, after back and forth trying things and removing the device from central I am currently even in a worse state. None of the VGWs will connect at all. Kind of a cross post with this thread Troubleshooting Central onboarding | Cloud Managed Networks (arubanetworks.com), I am currently trying to figure out how to get into the virtual machine. I see the machine connecting to Aruba Central but that's were in ends. The machines do not seem to be able to register.
