Site to Site connection MS Azure using Comware Router based

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect a Comware v7 device to MS-Azure using the router based Site to Site VPN solution based on the Cisco ASR example configuration supplied by Microsoft.

The Ikev2 SA shows connectivity has been established:

 Tunnel ID   Local                       Remote                      Status
  835         213.125.252.xx/500          52.166.94.xx/500            EST

I have created the config but I get errors on the Ikev2 ST :

 No proposal chosen: 1151

When inspecting the logfiles I see three errors:

GobyRouter954 IKEV2/7/ERROR: vrf = 0, src=213.125.252.xx, dst = 52.166.94.xx/500  Construct CERTREQ payload failed.

Some time later:

GobyRouter954 IKEV2/7/ERROR: vrf = 0, src=213.125.252.xx, dst = 52.166.94.xx/500  match proposal failed.
GobyRouter954 IKEV2/7/ERROR: vrf = 0, src=213.125.252.xx, dst = 52.166.94.xx/500  Failed to parse payloads about Child SA.

And then this:

GobyRouter954 IKEV2/7/FSM: vrf = 0, src=213.125.252.xx, dst = 52.166.94.xx/500  (Tunnel ID 241): Deleting negotiation context.

As far as i can see the config is exactly the same as the one for the Cisco.

I can't find these error's in the HP documentation and I kind of stuck. Can anybody give me a qlue where I must look to solve this?

Help is much appriciated.

Re: Site to Site connection MS Azure using Comware Router based

Hi there again,

After investigating the log file very closely I saw that the Comware v7 implemetation of the Ikev2 is not complete. In these logfile I noticed the following:

*Jan 31 17:46:19:847 2018 GobyRouter954 IKE/7/EVENT: vrf = 0, local = 213.125.252.xx, remote = 52.166.94.xx/500 Begin Main mode exchange.
*Jan 31 17:46:19:848 2018 GobyRouter954 IKE/7/ERROR: vrf = 0, local = 213.125.252.xx, remote = 52.166.94.xx/500 Failed to negotiate IKE SA.
*Jan 31 17:46:19:853 2018 GobyRouter954 IPSEC/7/EVENT: Sent delete SA message to all nodes, message type is 0x16.

This is exactly where it goes wrong. Within the ipsec command in Comware it is not possible to add in a Ikev2 profile. You can only add a Ike profile and MS Azure needs a Ikev2 profile to succes the negosiations to create the SA.

So now I investigated the Policy based optie in a other thread.

If anybody has a better idea please let me know.

Re: Site to Site connection MS Azure using Comware Router based


we've managed to get a (sort of) route-based connection using the following config. We're using VSR based routers (Comware7). Unfortunately there are no IPSEC Tunnel Interfaces available, so the traffic that should be encrypted needs to match an ACL From time to time the tunnel breaks and even an "reset ipsec sa" and/or "reset ikev2 sa fast" does not help, so the whole instance needs to be rebootet. But apart from this issue it's running stable in between.
