Using the MD5 Generator Utility

Issue: You need to compare installation directories to see the differences between them.

Environment: Windows, Linux

Resolution:

The md5generator generates a CSV containing the fields file_name, md5-checksum, and file_size_in_bytes. By default, the utlity will recurse into the folder provided as a parameter, and will generate md5 checksums of every .jar, .properties, and .xml file, and output the CSV to the destination of your choice.

 

DO THE FOLLOWING FIRST BEFORE RUNNING THE MD5 GENERATOR:

Stop the BA Server and/or DI Server

Delete the contents of the following directories

/tomcat/work/*
/tomcat/temp/*
/tomcat/logs/*

 

1) Extract pentaho-md5-generator-1.0.3.zip to your /pentaho directory

 

2) Change current directory to /pentaho/pentaho-md5-generator-1.0.3/

cd ~/pentaho/pentaho-md5-generator-1.0.3

 

3) Run the following command from your command line interface:

md5generator.bat -folder ../server/biserver-ee -output output/md5-output.csv -extension "*" -sort -ignore

 

4) Once this is done, you can send md5-output.csv to Pentaho Support for analysis

 

*UPDATE (6/15/2015): *Version 1.0.3 now includes a README.txt file for assistance with using the MD5 Generator. See README for other examples and explanations of the md5generator switches.
