Exchange 2007: Finding out what version and service pack you’re running.

First  you will need to find out some information about Exchange, and the only way to do that is to open up the Exchange Management Shell and run the following:

1
Get-ExchangeServer | fl name,edition,admindisplayversion

Then you will be shown the following:

| fl name,edition,admindisplayversion

Name                : mx3
Edition             : Standard
AdminDisplayVersion : Version 8.1 (Build 240.6)
As you can see the Version isn’t really all that informative. But its rather simple, the 8 stands for Exchange 2007 and the 1 stands for Service Pack 1. The build will also confirm that this is SP1, however I’m assuming it only changes when there are hotfixes or rollup updates.
Anyways, you can get all the version and build numbers from Microsoft at the following URL.
I am also going to copy and paste them here for historical purposes.
