Cisco AS5300 memory

Posted on 2004-11-04

I have 3 identical AS 5300 in use and a problem with one machine.
When I whant to get on one of the E1 Controller a pri-group like

Pri-group timeslots 1-31
I become a message back: no memory for isdn structure.

On the identical two other systems I have no problems.

Maybe someone has an idea.

Here the show version.

    Do you get identical "show  version" from all three AS5300?

    If you got identical hardware configuration and IOS version, try copying configuration from "good" AS5300 to the "bad" one.
        If succeed, the problem was missing command before configuring "Pri-group timeslots 1-31"
        else, you might have damaged part in AS5300, probably Channelized E1/PRI port.
    else, fix hardware configuration/IOS version.

    Hope this helps.

    It is not working to copy the config.
    The 4 port E1 I change already to  check if the ports have problems.
    But it looks goog.
    Trie to copy the config from one to another router.

    The problem is you don’t have enough RAM for that IOS, your supposed to have 128 Megs according to Cisco. I have found out that most of the time you can get by with just 64 Megs, but with only 32, you're lucky it even boots. Add more memory and the problem should go away.
