Chassis Model : PowerEdge R200
Chassis Lock : Present
Chassis Service Tag : 14HKTJ1
Chassis Asset Tag :
Flash chassis identify LED state : Off
Flash chassis identify LED timeout value : 300
This example above shows the chassis model is an R200, which cannot be upgraded to Authentication Manager 8.1.
To determine if the hardware on an Authentication Manager 8.1 server is Dell, Intel or VMware ESXi, run the commands below:

The RSA SecurID Appliance 3.0 on an A130 server was shipped with 4 GB of RAM. The new A130 server with Authentication Manager 8.1 ships with 8 GB of RAM.
The RSA SecurID Appliance 3.0 on an A250 server was shipped with 8 GB of RAM, but the 32-bit rPath Linux OS could only access 4 GB of RAM. The Authentication Manager 8.1 upgrade uses 64-bit SUSE Linux and can access all 8 GB. The new A250 server with Authentication Manager 8.1 is shipped with 16 GB of RAM.
Some of the hardware appliances running Authentication Manager 8.1 are shipped in certain geographical areas with non-Dell-brand hardware. These servers are already running Authentication Manager 8.1 or higher, so upgrading them to Authentication Manager 8.1 is not relevant.
