Description (partial)

Checking the hoststatus command in the CLI for a domain you can see that preference is provided somehow, which means that you are not able to configure the priority of the SMTP routes via command line. In the GUI you can see that the priority, in this case, for the three IP addresses remains intact and has 0 as a default value. The configuration file shows the same behavior as GUI, 0 as a default value.


> hoststatus

Host mail status for: ''
Status as of:         Wed May 27 21:50:34 2020 CDT
Host up/down:         unknown
SMTP routes for this host:
  [], [], []
Ordered IP addresses: (expiring at Thu May 28 21:50:52 2020 CDT)
    Preference   IPs

Even changing the priority values in the GUI, the CLI hoststatus command for that domain shows the values 0, 10 and 20.

When configuring SMTP routes in an ESA via CLI you are not asked to enter a preference value for each of the IP addresses assigned to the domain in use.
