Shahar:

It is not clear, do you want to verify that physical file A is like physical
file B or do you want to insure that fields in display file A match the
definition of fields in physical file B?

You can use DSPFFD to check each field individually.  You can use DSPFD to
check record format levels.  If you want to use MI, you could extract the
database file format objects and compare them.  This would be a questionable
idea since the format objects may change between releases and this would
make your program unreliable.

Subject: Object comparision


Hi all,

i'm using vision for high availability between 2
machines. The product is good however i came across a
situation where specific display file was different
between the production and the backup machine(level
check).

And for the question: is there a an elegant way to
compare 2 objects on 2 different as400 ? (objects for
me is display files and phisical files)

Important: in phisical files i want to compare the
attributes and not the data


Any comments are welcomed
