To verify the integrity of the firmware file, use a checksum tool and compute the firmware file’s MD5 checksum. Compare it with the checksum indicated by Fortinet. If the checksums match, the file is intact.
MD5 checksums for Fortinet software and firmware releases are available from Fortinet Customer Service & Support. After logging in to the web site, near the bottom of the page, click the Firmware Image Checksums button. (The button appears only if one or more of your devices has a current support contract.) In the File Name field, enter the firmware image file name including its extension, then click Get Checksum Code.
