Cisco IDSM2 Deployment Scenario Question

Hello,

I have this scenario:
There are several user VLANs and one server farm VLAN in a network.
The requirement is to deploy a new Cisco IDSM-2 module inline on the core/distribution 6509 switch such that user traffic destined to servers is subjected to application inspection and prevention.
The inline mode and inline-vlan-pair modes seem to allow one-to-one VLAN mapping only. However, I am interested in mapping several user VLANs to the single server farm VLAN on the IDSM monitoring port(s).
What design or configuration approach can I use in this scenario? Thanks.
Felix

You can send traffic from all user vlans destined to the server vlan to a dummy vlan, and then you can pair this dummy vlan for the IDSM in inline vlan pair mode.
