DRAM needed for upgrading IOS

Hi,

I have a 805 router with 8M DRAM and 8M Flash. I want to do an IOS upgrade but the minimum required for DRAM is 12M. Since the router in its usual operation requires less then 30% of memory, I'd like to know if it is possible to install the IOS anyway on my router.

Thanks in advance

David

Re: DRAM needed for upgrading IOS

Hi David,

It is always recommended to follow the minimum requirement guidelines as stated by Cisco, rather than having a wild guess and rough estimates.

Cisco would have arrived and hence recommended those figures based on so many factors.

The code might still work under a little lesser RAM. However there wont be any guarantee that we wont run in to any problems.

The bottom line is always follow the recommendations by Cisco.

Tank you VJ,

I understand that. I will give it a try, because from where I am it takes time to do a memory upgrade.
