2610xm rommon version

I have seen documents on that say you need to upgrade your 2610xm rommon to version 12.2(8r) in order to support 256 mb of ram.

Now, I have a 2610xm with rommon 12.2(7r) and a single 128 mb ram in one slot, so presumably I can add another simm to get 256 mb ram. Should I upgrade or should I leave it alone?


Re: 2610xm rommon version

hello ahmed

Is this the doc u saw ?

I guess you have to upgrade the rommon to the suggested version before the DRAM upgrade. I have seen in some other docs too, that you will need the correct version of rommon for memory upgrade. So, the safest & the only option is to upgrade the rommon.

hope this helps. all the best. rate replies if found useful.



Re: 2610xm rommon version

Documents also suggest that older 2610xm's only accept 64mb simms in each slot for a total of 128mb.

My guess is that 12.2(7r) is a beta version of 12.2(8r). It accepting 128mb simms in one slot and seems to be running correctly. I stands to reason that it will accept another 128 mb simm in the other slot for a total of 256 mb.

Hello ahmed,

see this URL too:

quite helpful.. i have also seen in some tac case notes, on the same problem, that the rommon version has to be upgraded before u upgrade to 256 MB.. prople have actually seen that the memory never exceeds 128 MB even though they have the hardware installed... so, i guess u need to follow as to what is given in the doc..

hope this helps.. all the best. rate replies if found useful..
