A pre-shared key for address mask x.x.x.x already exists

When I try copy start run I have the following message:

myrut# copy start run

Destination filename [running-config]?

A pre-shared key for address mask 194.98.138.75 255.255.255.255 already exists

A pre-shared key for address mask 212.100.246.178 255.255.255.255 already exists

8836 bytes copied in 0.812 secs (10882 bytes/sec)

VPNs works OK. But I have that message. My router is Cisco 2801.

What is the problem? How can I solve it?

I have tried to clear crypto isakmp sa, but of no avail.

Hi,

It means the configuration were already in the running-config.

It's expected in this scenario.

You're trying to overwrite your running config with your startup config. All the router is telling you is that it doesn't have to copy those lines because they already exist.

If you're wanting to save your config, you need to do "wr" at the prompt. If you need to replace your startup config with the running config, you can also use:

configure replace nvram:startup

HTH,

John
