Thank you for your help

It can not be changed. 

 

Either you need to rebuild the tunnel 

OR 

You need to backup the config >> Manually change the name of that tunnel (make sure you replace it with the new name and it must be changed wherever you referenced the old tunnel name in the config) >> Push the config back to Firewall. 

(It usually requires firewall to reboot)

Viknesh

yep IPSec renaming is a pain in the *censored* :\

 

You can only easily rename an ipsec if you happen to have that FGT in a FortiManager. FMG can do that for you.

If you don't have a FMG you can only do they way Viknesh wrote or old school which would be deleting all references, delte the ipsec and recreate everything which you don't want to do with that many references of course...
