I have installed the IDSM-2 module on the Catalyst 6509 switch, now I was refering to the configuration guide for IPS 6.0 there are multiple modes I can configure like inline, inline vlan pair, Promiscuous & vlan group mode.. so I'm thinking which one would be the best solution...

The catalyst 6509 is acting as the CORE/Distribution with multiple Vlan's (around 20 vlans) configured, and customer wants the IPS to be deployed in such a way that it covers the traffic from all the vlans..

Also note that there is a redundant Cat6509 switch which also has got the IDSM-2 module installed, so can these both IDSM-2 modules be installed in active/standby or active/active combination...

can someone through some lights on the same please...
