How to CHECKSUM a file

Recently i have had a couple of bad downloads from the Mitel download site. Unfortunatley i did not know until i came to use the ISO.

Mitel Provide the CHECKSUM number for all there downloads.

To find the CHECKSUM of a file you will need to download one of the many UTILS available

I use Microsoft’s Checker

This will give you two files FCIV.exe is the useful one.

Open a command prompt

Drop the FCIV.exe file into the command prompt window then type ” -add ”

Then drag and drop the ISO you want the CHECKSUM of into the CMD window

It should look something like this


Then press enter and it when finsihed it will look like this (length of time depends on how big the file is)


Now check that number against the number displayed on the download page of MITEL next to the download link

How to mount ISO as CDROM

This is useful for vMAS. Instead of transfering the ISO to the datastore of your VMWARE server, tranfer it to the mas via SFTP then mount the iso with these command.

I use it when installing the Nupoint DVD_2.

Procedure to mount ISO images under Linux

1) You must login as a root user, if not root user then switch to root user using following command:
$ su -

2) Create the directory i.e. mount point:
# mkdir -p /mnt/cdrom

3) Use mount command as follows to mount iso file called disk1.iso:
# mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/cdrom

4) Change directory to list files stored inside an ISO image:
# cd /mnt/cdrom
# ls -l

5) When finished you can unmount the cdrom
# umount /cdrom

More about loop device

A loop device is a pseudo-device that makes a file accessible as a block device. Loop devices are often used for CD ISO images and floppy disc images. Mounting a file containing a filesystem via such a loop mount makes the files within that filesystem accessible. They appear in the mount point directory using above commands
