The more I dig into this the deeper the rabbit hole goes. Here are a few
things I have found which I need to address.
- When a VPN connection, gateway, etc is deleted, the configuration is not
actually cleaned up.
- When a new configuration is defined, it only has the ability to add to or
modify the current configuration, it does not have the ability to remove config
items. Combined with the above point, this means that if you ever turn on
`dpd` for example, it is not possible to ever turn it off.
- The configuration files on the VR do not reflect the running config in
`ipsec`. You can have identical configurations and it will work sometimes and
it wont work other times. I have been able to reset the config to make the
running config match the defined config by doing a `ipsec restart`, but I have
to close the gap as to why it is not consistent and where the divergence
happens. I believe it is due to the PSK not actually getting updated with a
`ipsec rereadsecrets`, but because of other issues, I can't even get code
blocks to execute when they should be on changes.
- There appears to be a problem with the `if secret.is_changed() or
file.is_changed()` logic which is causing logic not to run when it should. I
am still working out why this is the case.
All to say, I still have a lot to work through before this is ready for
primetime. I think I have the Remote Access VPN functionality working as
expected and relatively stable now, but I am still working through a lot of
issues with the S2S VPN feature(s). I have given a code drop of the Remote
Access VPN functionality to one of our operations teams to continue testing
that feature as I work through the S2S issues. Hopefully I will have better
news next week.
Have a nice weekend everyone...
