IDSM-2: hints for initial network setup?

Hello team:

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

I think what you need to add is a command on the 6500 that puts the IDSM-2 management port in a particular vlan.  For example:

intrusion-detection module 9 management-port access-vlan 101

This would place the management port for the iDSM-2 card in slot 9 in vlan 101.  The host-ip that you define on the IDSM-2 card itself would then need to be valid for this vlan.

That´s what I was looking for. The linkage between the management port and the MSFC infrastructure! ¿ Why isn´t  this pointed out in the module´s configuration initial configuration guide?

Thank you very much, Rogelio
