I have a situation where we have at least 40 - 50 pairs of switches that don't have the same configuration between the primary and secondary. I can easily use the Config Management > Archive feature to compare each pair of switches one at a time. Instead I would like a way to do this in bulk.
Anyone have any ideas on the best way to approach this problem.

One way I can figure is write a policy for each pair so you can get an alert when they are different.

I'm presuming that your switch pairs will intentionally have *lots* of config items that should not match -- e.g., IP address, HSRP, STP priority, etc. So just flagging that they differ will not likely be useful.
IIf I understand what you really desire, you'll need a much more elaborate CPD to verify that required boilerplate is not only identical, but present, in both switches. And you'll need other logic to verify active/passive, primary/secondary roles in other config statements. That goes well beyond a diff.

Marty and Sif,
It makes sense what you are saying. Any recommendations on an approach. If I write a policy, how do I approach this?
I am bit new to the product, so any advice would be appreciated.
