If I try to upgrade a PIX 515/64MB RAM running an Unrestricted(UR) License to version 7.x will it automatically revert to a Restricted(R) license?

I understand a UR License requires 128MB RAM, but I do not not need the UR features.

Hi ,

The license will remain same after upgrade to 7.x code. It is true that UR licensed PIX requires 128 MB of RAM for 7.x code. If you dont need UR features, you may contact [email protected] and request for a Restricted key, you'll need to send the "show version" of the firewall. As UR to R conversion is downgrade, you should get the activation-key for Restricted license from licensing team.

Alternatively, you may refer to following link for upgrading memory on your PIX-


Hope this helps.
