There is no cluster support inherent in the IPS. You can either use Either Channel Load Balancing if you have a 6500 Switch or use some external technique like spanning tree to achive your requirement.
The link you given will be beneficial in inline mode deployment, but I want to deploy both of the IPS in promiscuous mode and want to monitor lot of VLANs which is not possible through SPAN, SPAN having some limitation regarding number of VLAN.
Capturing future is also not available under port channel interface. So I cannot use ECLB.
So I decided to configure the VACL, that why I am looking for some solution, both IPS needs to work in load balance mode if one of IPS fails that traffic needs to be diverted to second IPS and no duplicate alarms.
