The issue I am having is I still have to have a static route to reach the subnets on the other controller. I thought this would have been taken care of with the redirect... I am sure there is a simple solution that I am missing... Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions....

I was attempting to use the ACL as a type of 'source based route'. I only wanted to route specific packets into the tunnel based on their source. The user guide says redirecting to the tunnel is inplace of a static route. I should not need both. I think this is true because thye static route is to the inside of the tunnel, not the other end. Redirecting the traffic to this tunnel should do the same thing.

If I'm understanding ... you have a redirect in an ACL on Controller A to pass traffic up to Controller B, but controller B needs static routes pointing to the subnets on Controller A, correct?
The ACL can handle getting traffic from local subnets on Controller A into a tunnel and routed over to Controller B, but Controller B is still going to need routing information for return traffic. There isn't a dynamic routing protocol running over the tunnel itself, and the tunnel doesn't negotiate with the other end all of the connected L3 subnets that might flow across the tunnel, each end as an autonomous endpoint must know about the others.
Make sense or am I misunderstanding the problem?
