I have a 2811 ISR with IOS 12.3(14) and have configured ipsec to dynamically create sa's using IKE. This router will replace an existing router that is over-utilised. No actual files will be sent when the swap is performed so the tunnel will not be created. Once I perform the swap though, is there any way I can manually bring up the IPSEC tunnel to verify that it is working.
If I am understanding your post correctly the router that you will be replacing is configured to use a dynamic map to accept IPSec connections from remote routers (most typically done in situations where the remote router is getting an dynamic IP address assignment so the head end router can not statically map the peer relationship). In that case the head end router can not initiate the IPSec peering it can only accept connection requests from the remote. So when you replace the router and want to verify the connections you will need someone at the remote router to do something (pehaps an extended ping as Milan suggests). You will not be able to initiate the connection and test it from the head end router.
