HASHCONVERT Command

HSI Version:

4.0.1.1 and higher

Purpose:

Convert (deprecated) old-style VFS-style or (deprecated) HPSSSUM-style checksum hash to the "standard"-style hash.

This command is deprecated, and will be removed in a future release, when all old-style VFS/HPSSSUM checksum hashes have been converted to the new "standard" checksum format created by HSI.

Aliases:

lshash

Command Format:

hashconv[ert] [-A] [-d] [-s] [-v] [-R] path ...

Options:

-A : display absolute pathnames

-d: delete VFS or HPSSSUM checksum info after conversion\

-s : convert HPSSSUM-style checksum info

-v : convert VFS-style checksum info

-R : [standard option]recursively list hash entries for files in the specified path(s)


Keywords:

none

Usage Notes:

Note that this command does not change the checksum algorithm associated with the hash. The "hashcreate" command can be used to recreate the checksum hash with a different algorithm.

Example

To convert an hash created by an old version of the HPSSSUM utility to the new standard checksum style, and delete the existing HPSSSUM-style hash:

     hashconvert -sd path
