Hi, Attempting to follow the instructions for calculating the checksum on 28-1.1 on Fedora Server. The process fails with a file too large error. This is in Powershell on W10

Exception calling "ReadAllBytes" with "1" argument(s): "The file is too long. This operation is currently limited to
supporting files less than 2 gigabytes in size."
At line:1 char:1
+ $download_checksum = [System.BitConverter]::ToString($sha256.ComputeH ...
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], MethodInvocationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : IOException

The file size is: -a----       06/09/2018     16:31     2903506944 Fedora-Server-dvd-x86_64-28-1.1.iso

You might want to try sha256sum.exe for Windows.

I think this question can be solved by Router supports because I was also having a question relating to the Windows 10. You need to run few lines of CMD command to perform a checksum on windows 10.
