Tunnel Problem from New ASA to Working ASA

I have a working asa at the home office with 56 tunnels out to satellite stations.  We recently acquired another office and trying to get a tunnel working back to the home office.  The tunnel will not come up nor do I see any traffic on it using the debug isakmp or debug ipsec commands.

Here's the working config.  Assuming that the ASA in the home office is mirrored configuration for the tunnel, does anyone see anything wrong with this config?

Tunnel Problem from New ASA to Working ASA

This end configuration looks fine .However you need to check other end config as well. Turn on logging and initiate traffic from this end to other end and paste the logs those can also help.

Tunnel Problem from New ASA to Working ASA

Thanks for the reply Ajay.  It was actually the provider not placing the ASA's IP into the DMZ.  The office uses a small business Uverse connection, and they need to provide a set of static IP's in a DMZ.
