2651 memory


I'd be grateful if anyone could advise how I can find out what DRAM simms are in what slots on 2651s running a slightly venerable IOS (12.2(3d))

The command sh c2600 shows the DRAM slot contents when run on the IOS we want to upgrade to, but not on the old one.

Is there a tool the equivalent of the 3620/40 one?

Also, can anyone confirm Cisco's policy on approved memory. According to Cisco list prices it would be cheaper for us to buy 2611XMs with 128DRAM 32Flash and a DSL-WIC in order to obtain the memory upgrades we need for the 2651s and throw away the remains after taking the memory/WIC out than it would be to buy the parts separately. This is, quite frankly, ridiculous. There are vendors selling Cisco 'approved' memory at much more reasonable prices, but will this really invalidate our warranties/support contracts?

The only thing remarkable about this memory is Cisco's extravagant pricing!

Thanks & Regards

Andy Gray

If you are not using the memory from cisco , I think you will not get any support and warranties from cisco.

Re: 2651 memory

Cisco does not make their memory, if you are buying what's on Cisco AVL Approved there is no difference.  Example, you buy from Ingram Micro and Smart Modular brand with the correct AVL is inside the box, we ship those same parts inside our barcoded boxes, no difference:
