ASA 5505 Memory Upgrade


Since I’m not on full steam for my CCIE Written as I’ve re-scheduled it for 22nd April ’11, I found myself being bothered by upgrading a 5505 unit from 8.2 code to 8.3.

Given this unit wasn’t production, I had little interest in nailing a lot of money on Genuine Cisco memory so dug around and found a DIMM that worked.

The unit is a Samsung 512MB PC3200 DDR CL3 stick, and although not half height like the original 256MB DIMM, still fitted without fouling the chassis.
The full part number, (if it’s the correct line!?) is ┬áM368L6523DUS-CCC .

I hope this helps anyone running an ASA for test/dev out there.
