InfluxDB 2.3.0 Windows 64-bit OSS SHA-256 Hash

I downloaded the latest InfluxDB OSS for Windows 64-bit (2.3.0) as a zip and attempted to verify the hash before proceeding to unpack it. The hash I compute is:
C8EDF601922CC2F7134CDFBF36F0B95BFEDF385C17A166D164E7BB212BA1E4A9

whereas the published SHA256 hash value on the download site is:
b3a6621f8af121d824ef9f872150c76d92916bf4ead3b9ef08308dde9b10f3c6

I’m using Powershell Get-FileHash to compute the value, as:

Get-FileHash -Path influxdb2-2.3.0-windows-amd64.zip -Algorithm SHA256

Anyone else run across this? Is it to be trusted or is the published value in error?

Hi @FowlerDK,
Thank you for pointing this out! Can you send me a link to the download you used? It might just be an update error on our end but better to be safe!

Also welcome to the community! :slight_smile:

I concur:

Awesome, thank you @Pooh! Looks like a mistake on our end. I will ask one of our Edge Team to take a look. To give you peace of mind.

This is the official site for downloading the InfluxDB binary: Downloads.

Thanks for pointing this out and hope to get back to you soon!

@Jay_Clifford, I used the official download link here:

https://dl.influxdata.com/influxdb/releases/influxdb2-2.3.0-windows-amd64.zip

as you and @Pooh referenced. Thanks for the quick response!

Hello @FowlerDK @Pooh,

My apologies for this mix up! For the 2.3 release, I had also generated a .tar.gz archive for the Windows build. It looks like I accidentally used the checksum for that archive instead of the checksum for the .zip archive. I’ll update the downloads site shortly.

Thank you for catching this!

No worries! Glad it was a simple mix up and not something more serious…
I’ll look for the update on the download site.
