Flexible Inline Arrangements—Rules and Notes

Keep in mind the following when working with flexible inline arrangement:

■   If an inline tool is associated with a flexible inline map, it cannot be used in a classic inline map or in an inline decryption map. All inline networks and inline tools must participate exclusively in either flexible inline maps or classic inline maps.
■   You cannot create multiple unidirectional collector maps for the same inline network using the flexible inline canvas. For example, consider that you want to have different VLANs in each direction on the collector map, then you must create additional unidirectional flexible inline maps and associate unique VLAN tags (or it is automatically assigned by GigaVUE-FM).
■   The following functionalities are not supported in GigaVUE TA200 and GigaVUE-TA25 such as:
o   Physical Bypass Functionality is not supported due to the absence of BPS card.
o   Flexible and Resilient Inline SSL functionality is not supported due to the absence of GigaSMART card.
o   GRIP functionality is not supported due to the absence of BPS card.
o   Inline Bypass Solution (Classic)
■   In GigaVUE-TA25 and GigaVUE-HC1P, a Flexible Inline Single VLAN Tag configuration with monitoring mode configured in either the inline network or inline tool fails to send the traffic with an appropriate VLAN tag. Likewise, traffic is not sent to the OOB tool when the OOB copy is configured on the monitoring inline-tool. Similarly, if you configure Out-of-Band copy from inline network in Flexible Single VLAN Tag maps, OOB tool receives packets with improper tags.
■   The Inline maps limit for GigaVUE-TA25 is 256 bidirectional maps and for other nodes it is 512 bidirectional maps.
