Strange problem with new 2611XM router. Have two of these with 64MB DRAM each. Need 128MB so ordered the memory upgrades. However, when installing the new memory, the system no longer sees the Fast Ethernet interfaces!
The error message below is reported:
*Mar 1 00:00:10.024: %AMDP2_FE-1-INITFAIL: CSR0=0x0000
I first thought it might be bad/incompatible memory. So, as a test, an existing bank of 64 was removed from the 2nd router and put into the 2nd bank of the first router. Same thing...on boot does not have any ethernet interfaces.
I have tested both 64mb chips seperately in each router and they work fine. It just seems like once the router has more than 64MB total memory it won't work. This is an 2611XM so should support up to 256MB according to Cisco.
Also thinking a bad slot I have tried every combination of the 64/128 chips in each of the slots one at a time. The 64's work to boot successfully in either of the two slots fine just not in combination. The 128's cause the errors in either slot.
