Configure Inline Single Tag

During the flexible Inline bypass operations, network traffic sent to Inline-tools contains an extra VLAN tag. The extra VLAN tag is used to help distinguish the traffic coming from inline-tools and to make sure traffic is routed to the right inline networks. Using extra VLAN tags often presents problems for various inline-tools. The flexible Inline single tag can be used to replace the extra VLAN tag on incoming traffic. Using flexible inline single tags, you can map incoming VLANs on the network side to the outgoing VLANs on the tool side.

Note:  The OOB Copy tag attribute none is invalid for single tag maps. The attribute original should be used.

To configure an inline single tag:

1.   On the left navigation pane, go to Physical > Orchestrated Flows > Inline Flows, and then click Configuration Canvas to create a new Flexible Inline Canvas.
2. In the Flexible Inline Canvas that is displayed, select the required inline network from the list of devices.
3. Drag and drop the inline network into the canvas.
4. Click Settings to open the Settings pane.


5. Select the Enable check box for the Show Single Tag Options, and then enter the VLANS expected on the inline network.
6. Drag and drop a flexible inline map object into the canvas, and then click the map to open the Properties pane.
7. Select the Enable check box for the Single Tag Mode, and then enter the tool side VLAN tags. The VLAN qualifier is added to the rules by GigaVUE‑FM. If you do not specify any rules, GigaVUE‑FM adds a rule with the VLAN qualifier to the map.

Note:  You can choose to enable or disable the Single Tag Mode for collector maps, if required.


8. Drag and drop the required inline tools into the canvas.
9. Drag and drop the OOB Copy into the canvas, if required.


10. Click Port Editor, and then in the Quick Port Editor, scroll down to the hybrid or tool ports that you wish to configure. Select Enable to administratively enable the ports, and then click OK.
11. From the Destination Ports drop-down list, select the required hybrid or tool ports that you want to configure as destination ports. You can also select a hybrid or tool GigaStream. For information about GigaStream, refer to “How to Use GigaStream” section.
12. From the VLAN Tag drop-down list, select the required tags.
13. Click OK to save the configuration.
14. Click Deploy.
