Using Riverbed with multiple VLANs

Hello,

I have a Riverbed 1020 that I would like to use to optimze traffic over an MPLS cloud to a branch with another Riverbed 1020.  This would optimize traffic on several VLANs to the branch site.  We have users on VLAN10 and the servers on VLAN15.  These vlans are dot1q on the gig0/1 interface on the MPLS router.  The switch is configured as a trunk allowing all VLANs.  

We used to have the Riverbed inline between the router and the switch before we implemented VLANs.  Now that we have configured several VLANs on the router and switch and we want to place the Riverbed back into place, do I need to configure anything different on the Riverbed?  Will it allow the VLAN traffic to pass thru the MPLS router?  

Thank you.

Yes, it will allow the traffic to pass through.  If you are using fixed target rules, make sure to include the vLans you want optimized.

You are correct. In version 6.0 and above it is automatically configured for VLAN transparency. The only additional parameter I had to configure was the VLAN id since the inpath interface resided on a tagged VLAN.
