Forcing checksums on Content Library items

I’m trying to verify sync status of content library items in 6.7 via the API. I’m restricted to using PowerCLI 11.5 for now, so using the com.vmware.content.library[.item][.file] services.

I ran into a case where the ContentVersion numbers were all the same, but one of the files had a drastically different file size.

The file object has a checksum_info property that sometimes includes a checksum. I can’t find any way to tell vSphere to generate that checksum, and it doesn’t always show up on servers where I know the sync was successful.

Any idea where I should look for that setting or function?
