There are two routers, each with a NME-IPS module. For high availability, the routers are running HSRP and the NME-IPS is inline. If the router fails, then we know that the standby router would take over and so will the NME-IPS module inside the standby router start being inline.
However, lets take another case where the primary router is ok but the NME-IPS inside the router has failed? Is it possible for the IPS function to shift to the standby router's NME-IPS? Or is it possible to force the standby router and its IPS to become active due to the IPS failing?
Thanks a lot
