IDSM2 inline vlan pair on server farm

Unanswered Question

I am working with idsm-2, We have core switch configured with L3 point to point to Server Farm switches and Access switch (see attachment). The IDSM is installed on the server farm switches.

Is it possible to configure Inline Vlan pair to protect our server farm from internal or external attack.

How can IDSM monitor traffic from vlan user accessing server farm as on the server farm there is no other vlan unless the vlan created on that switch.

Any suggestion are appreciated

What is the default gateway of the server farm devices (servers)?

For inline vlan pair you usaually have to create a new vlan.

Say 100 and 700. 100 will be the one assigned to the L2 ports.

700 will be the vlan of your SVI.

The IDSM module will bridge both vlans at layer 2.
