If you have Teamcenter 11.2 or higher, I think it's better to use Admin Data Tools

Hi Marco,

I use the following process:

  1. export preferences from both sites
  2. sort the xml files by XmlSorter (you can find multiple software libraries providing it) having care to sort by tag name and specific attribute (name); I use to sort attributes too
  3. compare the sorted files by BeyondCompare

This way you can easily find out the differences.

Paolo
