Only difference is Inline Tool Sharing will be enabled and VLAN Translation will be disabled. As frames are untagged, there won't be any tag in packet to get translated, so Inline Tool Sharing should be enabled. Enabling Inline Tool Sharing will automatically disable VLAN Translation in NPB. This configuration applies same to both Single and Multiple Service Chain Deployment.
Figure 6 - Inline Tool Sharing Enabled
BIG-IP configurations are exactly same as mentioned in below articles specific to their deployments
This article specifies the exact configuration needed for deploying BIG-IP with IXIA Bypass Switch and NPB if frames are sent as untagged.
This article covers BIG-IP L2 Virtual Wire Passthrough deployment with IXIA for Untagged traffic. IXIA configured using Single Service Chain / Multiple Service Chain. Observations of this deployment are as below
Tool Sharing will add extra tag ( 2001 and 2002) to the untagged frames before sending to BIG-IP
BIG-IP receives tagged (2001 and 2002)) packets, as NPB adds extra tag.
Tagged frames which reaches NPB will be dropped, as VLAN translation is disabled.
All other traffic specific observations are same as below articles specific to their mentioned deployment
All the articles in IXIA- BIG IP series are specific to passthorugh mode, LACP termination in BIG IP cannot be achieved. In these articles, NPB is configured to redirect LACP and hence passthrough mode works fine. LACP termination in BIG IP cannot be achieved due to below limitations
For VLAN Translation in NPB, LACP packet must be bypassed using Redirect Heart Beat features inside Bypass Port Pair configuration, as requirement for VLAN translation. All traffics must be in VLAN tag and VLAN translation must be configured.
No LACP Termination can be done, as link must be established first before passing packets due to point 1 for VLAN Translation and with Tool Sharing LACP packets will be tagged, which result different packet when it reach Inline BIG-IP.
