Running a checksum

You can run the DB Checksum tool to generate a granular report of the changes in the system that were not permitted to be set as defaults.


  1. Navigate to the following directory:
    • For Windows: \<install_dir>\bin
    • For Unix/Linux: /<install_dir>/bin
    Note: If you are using Windows, you must run the Command Prompt as an administrator.
  2. Run the following command:
    • For Windows:
      db_checksum_tool.cmd [-d] [-i [1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5]] [-r [wfd | map | schema | sii | template]] [-o <output file>] [-g]
    • For Unix/Linux:
      ./ [-d] [-i [1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5]] [-r [wfd | map | schema | sii | template]] [-o <output file>] [-g]
