IDSM-2 load balancing on inline mode is it possible ..?

Hi there .. I am currenty working on a project and need to find out as to whether etherchanelling load balancing can be configured between several IDSM-2 running on inline mode. The IPS 5.1 admin guide states that it is possible for IOS based switches having the IDSM-2 configured on promiscuous mode, however I have heard that it might also be possible to configure etherchannelling load balance when the IDSM-2 are on inline mode. Any help .. commments will be appreciated .. any links to refer to will be even better

Thanks !!!

Re: IDSM-2 load balancing on inline mode is it possible ..?

To configure EtherChannel load balancing on IDSM-2, you must install Cisco IOS 12.2(18)SXE and have Supervisor Engine 720. Cisco IOS only supports promiscuous IDSM-2 EtherChanneling using VACL capture (not SPAN or monitor). Refer the URL

Hi .. yes I had already read that article before and that was the reason I posted the question .. We actually got a CPOC with Cisco and they got ethernet channel working for VLAN inline as well which was new even for them ..

Cheers,
