Comparing storage system configurations and backup configuration files

You can compare a storage system's current configuration with a backup configuration file to see the difference. You can also compare differences between two backup configuration files.

Step

  1. Enter the following command:
    config diff [-o output_file] config_file1 [config_file2]

    output_file is the name of the file to contain the differences. If you omit this parameter, the output of the command is printed to the console.

    config_file1 is the name of the first configuration file you want to compare.

    config_file2 is the name of the second configuration file you want to compare.
