PIX 515 L2L VPN problems after upgrade

After upgrading our pix 515 firewall from 6.3(1) to 7.2(1) I've problems with dynamic l2l vpns. All vpns which are defined with a static peer ip in the crypto map and the vpn client configuration are working fine, but all previous working dynamic map entries will fail because of a phase 2 mismatch:

[IKEv1]: Group = DefaultL2LGroup, IP =, IKE Remote Peer configured for crypto map: DYNMAP

[IKEv1 DEBUG]: Group = DefaultL2LGroup, IP =, processing IPSec SA payload

[IKEv1]: Group = DefaultL2LGroup, IP =, All IPSec SA proposals found unacceptable!

It looks like the match adress statement in the dynamic-map configuration doesn't work, but the access-lists are configured correct.

Any ideas?

Re: PIX 515 L2L VPN problems after upgrade

" All IPSec SA proposals found unacceptable " the error means that during the negotiation process, it is hunting down the list of available proposals and is unable to find one that matches what the remote end wants to do. This could be anything from mis-matched hash, mis-matched encryption settings, pfs not turned off (sha instead of md-5, des instead of 3des, pfs enabled instead of disabled.....). This could also be the result of the rules defining interesting traffic not mirroring the other end exactly.
