This article describes the process in which you can access your Microsoft Exchange's version number via a PowerShell Command. This is useful to know to help ensure your server is up to date with the latest patches and service packs.
- Windows Server 2008
- Microsoft Exchange Version ??? (That would defeat the object of this article!)
Method 1: PowerShell Command
There are various PowerShell commands that can be used to access your Exchange Server's Version number. I use:-
Get-ExchangeServer | Format-Table Name, *Version*
Method 2: Microsoft Outlook
If you do not have immediate access to the Sever or PowerShell remote access, you can also find out the Exchange Server version from a client PC with Outlook by:-
- Start Outlook
- Hold CTRL whilst Right Clicking the Outlook Icon in the System Tray
- Select Connection Status
- In the final column of the General tab, you should see a Version column containing the Server Version No.
