I managed to build a simple policy that calls a class-map to answer if ICMPv6 is requested on the VIP:
class-map match-all VIP_ICMP
2 match virtual-address 2001:1388:7ac0:3::aaaa 1
policy-map multi-match VIP_Policy
loadbalance vip inservice
loadbalance policy Farm_Policy
loadbalance vip icmp-reply active
loadbalance vip advertise active
Clients are able to "ping" the VIP when at least a real server is available, but I do not see any hits on the statistics:
ACE132/DNS# show service-policy VIP_Policy class VIP_ICMP summary
service-policy: VIP_PolicyClass VIP Prot Port VLAN State Curr Conns Hit Count Conns DropVIP_ICMP 2001:1388:7ac0:3::aaaa 1 any 610 IN-SRVC 0 0 0
¿Is this normal output? I should have expected as many hit counts as successful echo replies from the module to the clients...
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

It seems to be the normal behavior. You are getting replies because you are using loadbalance vip icmp-reply active and not because of that class-map.
In show conn output you will see that ICMP request is not being forwarded to any server which means that ACE is responding to the ICMP request and that's why you don't see any counters.
