Replacing faulty memory for Cisco ASA5520

In one of my older blog posts I wrote about one of my ASA firewalls, which is stuck during the boot process. See here for the older blog post: Cisco ASA5520 stuck at Booting system, please wait...

Now the replacement memory arrived and I replaced the faulty one.

After verifying the boot process with a console connection I saw the ASA 5520 came up with 2048 Mbyte RAM. However I'm going to verify the secondary with the show memory command.


xxxxxxxxxx-asa# sh mem
Free memory:        1618076032 bytes (75%)
Used memory:         529407616 bytes (25%)
-------------     ------------------
Total memory:       2147483648 bytes (100%)

On the second ASA 5520 I verify the memory with the failover exec mate show memory command:


xxxxxxxxxx-asa# failover exec mate sh mem
Free memory:        1582448384 bytes (74%)
Used memory:         565035264 bytes (26%)
-------------     ------------------
Total memory:       2147483648 bytes (100%)

Last but not least I verify the failover status wikith the show failover command:


xxxxxxxxxx-asa# sh failover
