You can try using the dbunload with the -n -r options
to generate the schemas a SQL. Then you can use
you favourite comparison utility (numerous options here
from diff to windiff) to help identify differences. This
helpful if the two database have a common history.

Version 11 added a new switch to the dbunload utility
(-no) to unload objects in name order to help out where
there are different histories involved. That switch was
introduced for just this very purpose.
