I follow until step 10 need to use below command to check the state

Step 11 references why you can have a difference when you restore from the old backup when using Panorama. You may need to manually configure the passive unit to actually get things back inline. 

Thanks for your reply, the firewall is not manage by Panorama and I have use the config audit to check both firewall except some IP of interfaces is different other config is identical and running config also show synced.  I can`t see any configuration I can manually configure anymore.
