Red Gate Snapper

SQL Snapper is a free utility that creates a SQL Compare schema snapshot of a SQL Server database. This snapshot can then be used as a database source in Red Gate's SQL Compare.

You will find SQL Snapper useful when you have databases deployed at a customer's site, and you need to use SQL Compare to compare the schema of a remote databases with your reference database. If the remote database cannot be accessed from your machine, you can ask your customers to use SQL Snapper to create a SQL Compare snapshot of their database's schema, and send the snapshot file to you. You can then load the snapshot into SQL Compare, and generate the appropriate upgrade script for the customer.

You'll need to download and install SQL Compare to get the latest version, but you don’t need a SQL Compare license to use SQL Snapper. You can find full details in this blog post: https://www.simple-talk.com/blogs/2014/07/21/compare-those-hard-to-reach-servers-with-sql-snapper/.
