Given this of course it is impossible to activate it.

Looking at /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections shows the
configuration file still present, so something has happened at a higher


nmcli connection

show it?

What do I need to do to correct this? What other files need to be fixed?
If I go into network settings and hit the "+" I see IPSec/IKEv2
(strongswan) as an option, but selecting it wants to define a new entry
not revive a lost one.


This is with nmcli version 1.22.10 on linux mint 20.1 x64 cinnamon release.

I may have corrected the problem.  I had added group permissions to the connection file and removing them appears to have solved the problem.  I guess network manager includes checking permissions as part of its integrity check.
