Hi,

I am trying to upgarde an IOS Ciso 7204VXR. The memory requiremeents for the new IOS is as follows:

Minimum Memory: DRAM:512MB   Flash:64MB

Following is the output from my router:

ROUTER1#sh version | i memory
Cisco 7204VXR processor (revision A) with 245761K/16385K bytes of memory.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ROUTER1# dir
Directory of disk0:/

    1  -rw-    42091892   Sep 9 2007 10:05:10 2:00  c7200-advip-mz.1xx-xx.T3.bin

128679937 bytes total (86585344 bytes free)

Looks like the new IOS will fit in Flash (86585344 )but it does not meet the DRAM requirements(245761K/16385K ). What do you think?

Thanks

No, it definitely won´t work with your installed DRAM.

Dont try it! It is going to crash! :)
Choose an IOS with less features (if you dont need them) or upgrade your DRAM!!
