I was asked to carry out a very basic configuration of a brand new IDSM-2 on a CAT6500. According to the documentation, once in the Supervisor´s CLI, I must execute a "session" command to the slot in which the IDSM is located.
Once there, I have to follow the wizard to add IP, mask and gateway. Having this configured, the module´s management interface should be visible from the rest of the network, but I do not see how this happens, since the module should use one of the switch´s VLANs, and I haven´t found how this is configured.
Question: ¿how will this IDSM link itself to the switch´s layer 3 engine? I do not see how its layer 2 will match any available VLAN in the host LAN switch...
Any help will be greatly appreciated
