PIX 520 model CO or DO

Gentlemen

Last night I was reading my release notes for my 16 MG ISA Flash Card prior to installing in my PIX 520. The release notes indicated that I need to verify whether I have a PIX 520 "CO" or "DO". Performing a show ver command does not reveal this? I have a little white sticker on the box that says "PIX 520 " only with no other detail.

How can I determine if I have one of these "CO" or "DO" models. Is it safe to assume that if it does not say it, that I can go ahead with the upgrade?..

Also, I have 2 of these 16 mg cards. Can I put both in or is 16 the cap on Flash... I ask because i want to upgrade to code ver 6.2.2; as well as install PDM version 2...

thanks

Kevin

Re: PIX 520 model CO or DO

It usuallt tells you on the sticker, but you can tell by the serial number as well.

A0 PIX's are between 18005000 - 18013334

B0 PIX's are between 18013335 - 18015503

C0 PIX's are between 18015504 - 18025676

D0 and E0 are 18025677 and higher

Note there may be a 44 in front of those numbers on your serial number sticker.

Also note that the install instructions say the 16Meg card is not compatable with the C0 PIX (or at least it used to say that), this is wrong and you can install this card with no problem.

Make sure you remove the existing 2Meg card first, otherwise the PIX won't work. The card is the one without any external connectors on it at the back.

You can only put one of these cards in, no need for both. You'll be able to load 6.2(2) and PDM with no problems.
