The 4GB DRAM is only for ASA 5580 model. It is not available for the lower ASA series.


So to answer your questions:

1. Yes, 2 GB is the maximum for ASA5540

2. ASA5540-MEM-2GB=  comes with 2 DIMMS (1GB each).

Thank you Halijen.


Looking at the release notes it does say


"On both the ASA 5580-20 and the ASA 5580-40 adaptive security appliances only 4 GB of memory is available for features. The rest are reserved or used by the OS. The show memory command will only display values relative to 4 GB."


1. Does this still mean that 2GB is the maximum memory we can install?

2. Does 2GB (ASA5540-MEM-2GB=) come as a sing module or 4x512 MB modules?


Rgds,
