Remove or redirect any existing configuration references to interfaces that you want to use as SD-WAN members. This includes the default Internet access policy that’s included with many FortiGate models. You must do this before you configure the interfaces as SD-WAN members.

Redirecting the routes and policies to reference other interfaces avoids your having to create them again later. After you configure SD-WAN, you can reconfigure the routes and policies to reference the SD-WAN interface.
