We want to run ASA 8.4.x on an old ASA5540. We need to upgrade its memory to 2 Gb with the following memory upgrade: ASA5540-MEM-2GB=
I suspect that we will completely remove the existing 1 Gb of memory and replace it with 2 Gb. If this is the case, can I use this 1 Gb of memory removed from the ASA5540 and put it in a ASA5510 instead of buying a ASA5510-MEM-1GB= for the ASA5510?
Thanks for your answer.
Searching in the forums today I found this question from April 2011 which is very similar to my question. It is titled: "ASA5540, 5520, 5510 memory upgrade" by micoogullari
I understand that ASA5580 or 5585X are pretty different (and ASA5505 too), but ASA5510/5520/5540 have pretty much the same form factor and, I thought, the same internal components. So who's right?
Thank you very much,
