  • You should be able compare two objects for equality of properties and values by using Compare-Object to compare the Properties properties of both objects. Example:

    if ( -not (Compare-Object $obj1.PSObject.Properties $obj2.PSObject.Properties) ) {
      "object properties and values match"
    else {
      "object properties and values do not match"
