I am looking at upgrading a 515E to 7.2(X) release but I am wondering about the memory requirements. The PIX in question has 64MB Ram/16MB Flash, UR and FO licensing. I keep seeing in the memory requirements that it needs to be a minimum of 128MB Ram to maintain the licensing but I have another PIX firewall that was upgraded(by another tech) to 7.2(2)14 that is also 64/16 with the same licensing structure and it appears that all the licensing remained intact after the upgrade. I am a bit confused by the memory requirements and am wondering if I should be concerned.
Pix 515E uses PC100 SDRAM. If you have an old
DELL Optiplex GX110 desktop, you can take the
128MB ram chip from the desktop and put into
the Pix 515E and it will run just fine. Both
Pix 515E and Dell Optiplex GX110 use Kingston
