1. 64 MB of DRAM serves as a replacement for any DRAM DIMM slot on a minimum configuration of 128 MB (both slots populated) for the GRP.
2. GRP route memory configurations of 512 MB are only compatible with Product Number GRP-B=. Cisco IOS Release 12.0(19)S or 12.0(19)ST or later
and ROMMON Release 11.2 (181) or later are also required.
3. Default DRAM configuration is 128 MB. Bank 1 (U39) must be populated first. You can use one or both banks to configure DRAM up to 512 MB.
4. SRAM is not user configurable or field upgradeable.
5. NVRAM is not user configurable or field upgradeable.
6. SIMM socket is wired for Cisco's own design and does not accept industry-standard 80-pin Flash SIMMs.
7. Cisco IOS Release 12.0(17)S or 12.0(17)ST or later is required, along with the corresponding boot images, for the GRP to function with a Flash disk.
8. Linear Flash memory cards and ATA Flash disks can be used in either (or both) Flash card slot(s).
DRAM
DRAM stores routing tables, protocols, and network accounting applications, and runs the Cisco IOS
software. The standard (default) GRP configuration is 128 MB of extended data output (EDO) DRAM,
with up to 512 MB available through DIMM upgrades.
GRP route memory configurations of 512 MB are only compatible with Product Number GRP-B=.
Note
In addition, Cisco IOS Release 12.0(19)S or 12.0(19)ST or later and ROMMON Release 11.2 (181)
or later are also required.
