Compare LPAR profile to running configuration

I've been working a script that compares the running configuration of an LPAR to its saved profile and generates a report of the differences.
Any time a server is shut down and then reactivated there is a potential for problems. If changes were DLPAR'd in to the LPAR while it was running and not saved to its profile, the next time it is shut down and restarted it might have the wrong amount of resources or might not even boot. Troubleshooting a non-booting LPAR in this state is very difficult.
Profiles and the running configuration get out of sync in 2 different ways:
prdiff compares the profile and the running configuration and produces a report. Run this script before you power off any LPAR.
Below is a screen shot of the report prdiff produces. For further details and to download the script go to http
