This is normal. If you know the IP subnets on either or both sides, you can narrow down the scope of the IP range. (, for example) If you are using a routing protocol like OSPF or RIP, you need to use the selectors. From the CLI, you can add the command
set auto-negotiate enable
in the phase 2 configuration. This will automatically bring the tunnel up if it drops without your intervention.
