-------QUESTION-------
We tried to install the 6 packet memory modules of 3GE-GBIC-SC NO. 2 to 3GE-GBIC-SC NO. 1 but the 3GE-GBIC-SC NO. 1 did not sync with the GRP-B. It seems that 3GE-GBIC-SC NO. 1 does not accept any packet memory modules higher than 256MB. Do we have to upgrade the firmware/version of the hardware? If yes, kindly provide us the procedure or any link on how to do upgrade the hardware.
Thank you and regards,

Hello Alfad,

I see that the linecard that accepts the 512 MB packet memory is version E0 and it is newer then the other one

also take in account memory chips location on engine2

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/12000/gsr_linecards/enet_lc/installation/guide/enet_lc.html#wp651093

check memory on linecards

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/12000/gsr_linecards/enet_lc/installation/guide/enet_lc.html#wp651420

3GE datashet says that packet memory can be upgraded to 512 MB regardless of version

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps2710/products_data_sheet09186a0080092085.html

so the version or revision should not be a problem

Hope to help

Giuseppe
