I have a large quantity of ASA5520's and ASA5540's that need to be quickly assessed and RTV'd (if need be) if they are found to be upgraded ASA5510's.
My concern is because of this recent release-note by Cisco:
Is there a way to check the amount of DIMM slots on a unit through console or do I have to physically check each and every one? Thanks.
That's an interesting note!
In theory, if you don't know the provenance of your ASA, I suppose you would have to physically check. It would need to be unracked and opened up. They have about 15-20 screws on the top and sides so it definitely needs to be pulled out.
In practice, it's only certain systems you'd need to do this on. If the device currently reports 256 MB, it's a 5510. If it reports 2 GB, it's really a 5520 or 5540 as it reports. If it reports 512 MB or 1 GB and hardware type 5520 or 5540 it could be one of the pirated boxes.
