There often comes the time you need to find out the Configuration Manager version. You will need to find the build number, version and CU level.
What is build and version ?
The build number in 5.00.8239.1000 is 8239
The version in 5.00.8239.1000 is 1000.
If you want to find the console version you need to go on the left upper corner blue arrow in the console and check About
Site version can be checked like this
Check the Site Version from site properties: Go to Administration -> Site Configuration -> Sites, then right-click the site and select Properties.
The steps above can also be achieved by running the following SQL query
select SiteCode,BuildNumber,Version from sites
The output will look like this:
As you might have noticed, the current CU level is missing.
To check the actual version (site version+ current CU level) can be checked in the registry:Check the version in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Setup\CULevel
