Exchange 2010 Version Hunting

Ever wonder what your Exchange server version is? Thought the GUI or command line would give you all the nitty gritty details? They don’t. Here is a sample taken from an Exchange environment I support:

Using this powershell command to check the versions of Exchange:

        Get-ExchangeServer | fl name,edition,admindisplayversion

My results from the script were:

Exchange server 1 – Service Pack 2 – no Rollups

AdminDisplayVersion : Version 14.2 (Build 247.5)

Exchange server 2 – Service Pack 1 – no Rollups

AdminDisplayVersion : Version 14.1 (Build 218.15)

    Exchange server 3 – Service Pack 1 – RU6

AdminDisplayVersion : Version 14.1 (Build 218.15)

I then checked Help – About Exchange Server 2010 and got:

The above screenshot shows the server has been indeed patched and a rollup applied, however, if you have multiple servers, this only tells you the version of the console you are on.

So then I found this nice script: http://www.bhargavs.com/index.php/2009/12/14/how-do-i-check-update-rollup-version-on-exchange-20xx-server/

Which gave me this result: [in CSV format]

     Server Name,Rollup Update Description,Installed Date,ExSetup File Version

<servername>, Update Rollup 6 for Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (KB2608646) 14.1.355.2, 2011/12/22, 14.01.0355.002

Try the script out yourself and happy Exchange Version Hunting!
