How to compare settings on two Windows 2000 servers
Posted on 2009-05-01
We have an application hosted on Windows 2000. On one server the application is fine, on the other its causing us problems. I wont bore you with details on the application (its a personal app). We wanted to rule out any enviornment issues and i wanted to know how a standard way to compare settings on both servers.
So this would be stuff like ODBC connection pooling timeout setting, MSDTC, installed applications, patches, even hardware, like amount of memory, CPU, disk capacity etc.
On VM you can compare configuration xml's but for physical machines is there any way to do this, other than make a really long list and work through each setting on each server?
