Quick Fix – Exchange Server Version?

Just noticed a new KB pop up on the RSS Feed – here

(How to determine the version number, the build number, and the service pack level of Exchange Server)

Bit of a mouthfull!

Anyway, the powershell command they suggest is pretty basic and does not give us a real friendly out put..



I much prefer this command that i snagged from this guys blog

Get-ExchangeServer | fl name,edition,admindisplayversion


Much cleaner results – and you can actually see the important info!

Update 25/10/2011

Try this command instead:

get-exchangeserver | select-object Name, ExchangeVersion, Admindisplayversion, serverrole, edition | fl

You can then match the ‘Exchange Version’ using this wiki post and find out how up to date you are.
