Display Exchange 2010 version

Working with Exchange 2010 and SBS 2011, you should expect to become familiar with PowerShell. Here’s a quick easy solution for displaying the version of Exchange 2010 installed on a server:


  1. Start the Exchange Management Shell (EMS). Give it a few seconds to start up.
  2. From the PowerShell [PS] prompt, type: get-exchangeserver | format-table name, *version*
    Note: the above PS command is NOT case sensitive
  3. Compare your result to the following table (see this Microsoft Technet page):
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 – Build 14.0.639.21 – Date 11/9/2009
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 – Build – Date 8/24/2010
  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP2 – Build – Date 12/4/2011

In my case (see screenshot above), I have Version 14.2 (Build 247.5) which indicates that I have Exchange 2010 SP2 installed.
