Description (partial)

The Configuration Version Viewer (Config Diff Viewer), when comparing two configurations, shows a difference between versions that are exactly the same. This viewer is available through the Configuration Archive window.

1. Add any ISR/ASR router and discover the policies in Security Manager.
2. Once the discovery is successful, do a deployment of the router configuration.
3. Select the device in Device view and select  Tools -> Configuration Archive.
4. Select the configuration you discovered from  the device and click the View button.
5. In the Configuration Version Viewer window, select the deployment configuration on the right hand side. As the two configurations are exactly same, the Config Diff Viewer should show 0 differences between them but it shows some differences. Also it will be seen that the location of some of the commands is shuffled in the right side window.
