Fetch Operations Manager Version Information
There are scenarios wherein administrators need to look for the SCOM version information whenever they need to install the Update Release, raise a case with Microsoft, go for a disaster recovery, etc.…
I know it’s not a tuff task to obtain the SCOM version information however I came across few scenarios wherein I saw SCOM beginners struggling to obtain this information.
One of the recent scenarios, wherein one of our clients were running their SCOM test environment with one Management Server and Operations Manager database on separate server. Somehow their Management Server got corrupt and they were unable to determine whether they were running with SCOM 2012R2 or SCOM 2016.
This information can be easily gathered through OperationsManager DB.
1: Login on to SCOM DB server and connect to the instance holding SCOM DB.
2: Run below query:
SELECT * FROM [OperationsManager].[dbo].[__MOMManagementGroupInfo__]
The installed SCOM version will reflect under DBVersion column.
In this scenario, DBVersion column contains 7.2.11719.0 value, that means it’s running on SCOM 2016 RTM.
You can relate the version information by following below link:
Apart from the above scenario, there are several other ways we can fetch SCOM version information, so let’s start with the easiest one.
1: Login on to SCOM Console.
2: Click Help on Menu bar and select About.
The SCOM version information will be visible as below:
1: Login on to SCOM Management Server and open Control Panel.
2: Select Microsoft Monitoring Agent and click on Properties tab.
The SCOM version will be visible as below:
Same way information can be gathered from managed server (Client Machine) as well.
1: Login on to SCOM Management Server.
2: Open Operations Manager Shell and run below cmdlet:
get-SCOMManagementServer | ft version
Hope this helps.
