Re: slot0 and bootflash confussion

Cfajardo,

The bootflash is the onboard memory module (DIMM) which is not removable.  Slot0 is the CF card slot.

HTH,

Re: slot0 and bootflash confussion

hi brandon,

are you referring to the sodimm which by default comes with 512mb when you said dimm?

thanks

Re: slot0 and bootflash confussion

No -- I apologize for the confusion -- The SODIMM is the Supervisor's RAM memory. However, I believe there is another compact flash memory module located on the Supervisor that is a similar style flash module, although I can't find documentation.  I might be wrong on that one.  If you pull out the Supervisor, you should be able to tell which module is the DRAM and which is the Flash, assuming there are more than 1 module.

If you can't afford to pull out the Supervisor, you can add a compact flash card and set the Supervisor to boot from the CF card.

Re: slot0 and bootflash confussion

-so does that mean the bootflash is not an FRU?

thanks

Re: slot0 and bootflash confussion

I'm still looking, but most likely not an official FRU -- I can't find any part numbers other than CF cards.   So if you are having problems with a SupV and you have a SmartNet, then I would work with TAC to arrange an RMA.

If you're on your own however, then I still think there is a replaceable flash module, but it would be a matter of finding the right part. See the attached pictures from an Ebay auction for a WS-X4516  -- one of those modules is clearly a Flash module.
