We are currently putting together a solution that I have come in halfway through just after some assistance in regards to setting up the IDS. We have 2 * 6509 chassis, 2 * IDSM-2 modules.
Scenario 1 - Both IDSM-2 Modules in primary chassis, can load balance traffic to IDS. Primary Chassis failure = no ids.
Scenario 2 - IDSM-2 Module in each chassis, active/standby scenario. Can basically only use one IDSM modules throughput. Chassis failure still have IDS.
At the moment I am leaning towards the first scenario and no IDS if we have a chassis failure. Just wondering if it's possible to load balance in scenario 2.
