How to determine which version and edition of SQL Server Database Engine is running

Collapse this imageExpand this image
To determine the version of SQL Server, you can use any of the following methods:

Method 1: Connect to the server by using Object Explorer in SQL Server Management Studio. After Object Explorer is connected, it will show the version information in parentheses, together with the user name that is used to connect to the specific instance of SQL Server.

Method 2: Look at the first few lines of the Errorlog file for that instance. By default, the error log is located at Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.n\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG and ERRORLOG.n files. The entries may resemble the following:
2011-03-27 22:31:33.50 Server      Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64)                 Mar 29 2009 10:11:52                 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation                Express Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: )
As you can see, this entry gives all the necessary information about the product, such as version, product level, 64-bit versus 32-bit, the edition of SQL Server, and the OS version on which SQL Server is running.

Method 3: Connect to the instance of SQL Server, and then run the following query:
Select @@version
An example of the output of this query is as follows:

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP1) - 10.0.2531.0 (X64)   Mar 29 2009 
10:11:52   Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation  Express 
Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 <X64> (Build 7600: )

Method 4: Connect to the instance of SQL Server, and then run the following query:

SELECT SERVERPROPERTY('productversion'), SERVERPROPERTY ('productlevel'), SERVERPROPERTY ('edition')
Note This query works with any instance of SQL Server 2000 or of a later version.

The following results are returned:
  • The product version (for example, 10.0.1600.22)
  • The product level (for example, RTM)
  • The edition (for example, Enterprise)

For example, the results resemble the following.
Collapse this tableExpand this table
10.0.1600.22RTMEnterprise Edition
Note The SERVERPROPERTY function returns individual properties that relate to the version information, although the @@VERSIONfunction combines the output into one string. If your application requires individual property strings, you can use the SERVERPROPERTY function to return them instead of parsing the @@VERSIONresults.

Method 5: Starting with SQL Server 2008, you can also use the Installed SQL Server Features Discovery report. This report can be found by locating the Tools page of SQL Server Installation Center. This tool gives information about all the instances of SQL Server that are installed on the system. These include client tools such as SQL Server Management Studio. The only thing to be aware of is that this tool can be run locally only on the system where SQL server is installed. It cannot be used to obtain information about remote servers. For more information, visit the following blog post on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN):

SQL Server replication

Collapse this imageExpand this image
Because replication agents may be installed on several different computers, it is important to check the installed versions on all affected computers.

For example, the Distribution Agent in Transactional or Peer-to-Peer replication may exist on computers that differ from the publisher instance of SQL Server and may exist on the various subscriber instances of SQL Server in a pull subscription.

If you use Web Synchronization for Merge Replication or SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition replication, the IIS web server may not be the same computer as the computer that is running SQL Server. Therefore, you have replication agent files that are installed on the IIS web server. And you may have to check the version of those .dll files in the IIS virtual directory and update them explicitly to obtain the latest service packs, cumulative updates, and hotfixes for your web agents.

For more information, see the following topic in SQL Server Books Online:
Using Multiple Versions of SQL Server in a Replication Topology (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143241.aspx)

Full-text search

Collapse this imageExpand this image
Full-text search components include the following:
  • Sqlserver.exe
  • Sql_fulltext_keyfile.dll
  • Iftsph.dll
  • Fd.dll
  • Fdhost.exe
  • Fdlauncher.exe
Except for Sqlservr.exe, these components may not be updated with each cumulative update or service pack for the respective SQL Server product. The versions of these files will change only when there is a fix to the respective component. Generally, you can check the file version of each of these .dll files. The highest version in the list is the version of the full-text search component that is installed on the system.

You can use one of the following methods to determine the version of the full-text search component that is installed on your system.

Note Each of these methods may indicate that the version of the full-text search compnent is either RTM or a version that is earlier than the current version of the database component. We acknowledge that this is a problem and are working on fixing it in a future update.

Method 1: Check the version of SQL Server Full-Text Key (Sql_fulltext_keyfile.dll) in the SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2008 installation folder. Typically, for SQL Server 2008 R2, this file is located in the following folder:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSQL10_50.<Instance Name>\MSSQL

For SQL Server 2008, this file typically is located in the following folder:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSQL10.<Instance Name>\MSSQL

Method 2: Check the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft sql server\Mssql10_50.instname\Setup\SQL_FULLTEXT_ADV
An example entry at this registry key is the following:
featurelist:          SQL_FullText_Adv=3 SQL_FullText_CNI=3ProductCode:    {9DFA5914-C275-42E0-810E-C88E46A7F9EA}Patchlevel: 10.50.1765.0Version: 10.50.1600.1
In this example entry, the third line (Patchlevel) indicates the current build of full-text search component that is installed, and the fourth line (Version) usually shows the original version of full-text search that is installed. In this case, it is SQL Server 2008 R2.

Method 3: Use the Summary.txt file that is created during setup. For SQL Server 2008 R2, this file is located in the following folder:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Summary.txt

For SQL Server 2008, this file is located in the following folder:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Summary.txt

See the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base for a known issue with full-text search components in SQL Server 2008 installations:
973888  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/973888/ ) The Full-Text Search component is not completely rolled back to the Service Pack 1 version after you uninstall Cumulative Update 3 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 that is applied by using a slipstream installation

SQL Server Master Data Services (MDS)

Collapse this imageExpand this image
The MDS Configuration Manager does not show the currently installed version number directly.

Be aware that MDS has a unique versioning scenario in which the SQL Server database engine installation does not necessarily match the MDS version. The version may vary when you compare the SQL Server installation to the binaries deployed in the MDS website and the MDS catalog schema version. Manual steps that use the MDS Configuration Manager tool are required to update and to upgrade the MDS websites and database schemas. You can refer to the following blog post on hotfix and service pack update methodology for MDS:
Downloading and Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services (MDS) Cumulative Updates (http://sqlblog.com/blogs/mds_team/archive/2010/08/25/downloading-and-installing-sql-server-2008-r2-master-data-services-mds-cumulative-updates.aspx)

The following registry key shows the binary versions that are installed on the SQL Server. However, this version does not necessarily match the website and database schema version until the MDS upgrade process is complete.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Master Data Services 10.5\CurrentVersion

You can check the installed product version and schema version by using the following query in the MDS catalog:

Frequently used terms and acronyms

Collapse this imageExpand this image
Cumulative update (CU): A roll-up update that contains all previous critical on-demand hotfixes to date. Additionally, a CU contains fixes for issues that meet the hotfix acceptance criteria. These criteria may include the availability of a workaround, the effect on the customer, the reproducibility of the problem, the complexity of the code that must be changed, and other topics.

Hotfix: A single, cumulative package that includes one or more files that are used to address a problem in a product and are cumulative at the binary and file level. A hotfix addresses a specific customer situation and may not be distributed outside the customer's organization.

RTM: Usually means "release to manufacturing." In the context of a product such as SQL Server, it indicates that no service packs or hotfixes were applied to the product.

RTW: Usually means "release to web." It indicates a package that was released to the web and made available to customers for downloading.

Service pack: A tested, cumulative set of all hotfixes, security updates, critical updates, and updates. Service packs may also contain additional fixes for problems that are found internally since the release of the product and a limited number of customer-requested design changes or features.
