Checking IOS image integrity

Dear All,

I have an IOS image (c7200p-xxx.bin) running on my Cisco 7200.

I want to check it's inegrity with the "verify" command (the command performs an MD5 hash), but the IOS image is not present in Cisco Download Software tool, so no MD5 hash are available to compare.

Is there any tool on that provides MD5 hash for old IOS images ?

I think when verify provides an "okay", you've got a valid image.

Believe it or not, raise a TAC Case.  Even with a corrupted IOS you'll get an "OK" response in most cases.
