Environment

Release : 12.1

Resolution

NetMaster L2 Support provided us with the details--sent to customer:
-


As specified in the IBM manual, even though it only states dynamic tunnels it also appears it is required for    manual tunnels

as well:

   

The IKE daemon manages dynamic IPSec tunnels and provides a network management interface (NMI) for monitoring   and

controlling IP filtering and IPSec. Because the IKE daemon processes NMI monitoring requests, it must be running to gather

monitoring data for IP filters, manual Security Associations, or dynamic     Security Associations.

Customer confirmed it as being the solution: We started IKED (IKE daemon) and all is now working
