Verifying the checksum of a file#

To help ensure that a file was correctly uploaded or synced you can use the checksum tool. This routine fetches a file from a database and verifies that the stored hash checksum and the calculated hash checksum of the file on disk are the same.

On a package’s page, view the file list and click the Info button next to a file to see the file’s keyname.

To check the file’s hash checksum run:

anaconda-server-checksum keyname

NOTE: Replace “keyname” with the file’s keyname.

The output will be either Hashes are the same or Hashes differ.

To overwrite the old hash checksum in the database with the new hash checksum you calculated, use the option --fix.
