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:
- Start the Exchange Management Shell (EMS). Give it a few seconds to start up.
- From the PowerShell [PS] prompt, type: get-exchangeserver | format-table name, *version*
Note: the above PS command is NOT case sensitive
- 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 126.96.36.199 – Date 8/24/2010
- Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP2 – Build 188.8.131.52 – 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.
