Hierarchy Level


Configure the global preference value for the ARI-TS (Auto route insertion for traffic selectors) routes added when a IPsec traffic selector based IPsec VPN has been established.

A new category ipsec-traffic-selector for Auto route insertion traffic selectors (ARI-TS) route is added in [edit protocols] hierarchy for setting global preference value for ARI-TS route.

When a preference value is updated either in global scope or local scope, the already added secure tunnel routes are updated with new preference value.

The preference value update affects the ARI-TS tunnel routes as follows:

  • Any changes to the global values impact all traffic selectors configured without a local value.
  • Any changes to the local values impact only those specific tunnels.
  • Any routes impacted by the change are deleted and added again with the new value.


The default value for ipsec-traffic-selector preference value is 5 if not configured.


preference pref-value

Specify the preferential selection of routes for the same remote IP address or prefix added by different protocols (static, BGP, OSPF, and so on).

  • Range: 1-4294967295.

  • Default: 5.
