Cuestion about CSM on bridge&router mode

Plese help me with this cuestion about CSM connection modes:

We have 2 Cat6500 with a CSM inside of each (CSM1 on Cat6500_1 and CSM2 on Cat6500-2)

The CSM1 is on bridge mode with Vlan31 for Client side and Vlan131 for Server side.

The CSM2 is on router mode with Vlan30 for Client side an Vlan2 for Server side.

We want to join both switches for redundancy purposes (switches and CSMs).

We want to merge the two Client Vlans (include the logical IP segments) on a /23 mask.

But the cuestions here are:

Can we keep the original config (bridge mode and router mode) on the CSM1 (for example)

considering this Module as active and CSM2 as standby?

Is there any consideration to take in count in order to configure this? (Some examples...)

Thanks in advance

yes, you can mix bridge more and router mode and so merge the 2 configs.
