Update Rollup 7 (UR7) für SCOM 2012 R2 – Die Produktversion in der Konsole ist da!
How to check whether a SCOM Update Rollup (UR) has been installed properly? How to obtain the current product version of SCOM 2012 R2?
Until UR6, you had to check various library files in different folders, depending on which components the Update Rollup was destined for.
In the case of a management server update, you had to navigate to the following folder:
…\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Server
After the installation of UR6 you had to check the version of the following files:
Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.DataAccessService.OperationsManager.dll Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.DataWarehouse.DataAccess.dll Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.HealthService.Modules.DataWarehouse.dll Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.RuntimeService.dll Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Utilirty.WorkflowExpansion.dll
In case of a console update the updated files were to be found in the following folder:
…\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Operations Manager\Console
A quick glance at the table of the SCOM Build Numbers shows that in fact the DLL’s have the version number of the UR6 (7.1.10226.1064):
|Build Number||KB||Release Date||Description|
|7.1.10226.0||SCOM 2012 R2 RTM|
|7.1.10226.1011||KB2904678||2014, January 27||SCOM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 1|

|7.1.10226.1090||KB3064919||2015, August 11||SCOM 2012 R2 Update Rollup 7|
Another proof of the successful installation of the corresponding update is the presence of event ID 1036in the Application log:
|Date:||9/12/2015 12:39:05 PM|
|Description:||Windows Installer installed an update. Product Name: System Center Operations Manager 2012 Server. Product Version: 7.1.10226.0. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation. Update Name: System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager UR6 Update Patch. Installation success or error status: 0.|
Unfortunately, prior to UR7 it was not possible to check the product version of SCOM directly in the console. No matter which Update Rollup was installed, the console displayed the following:
My research showed that there are sources on the Internet that suggest to run the following SQL query in order to check the SCOM Version:
select DBVersion from __MOMManagementGroupInfo__
This is only partially correct, because the query shows only the so called „Core“ version of SCOM.
Since UR7 we don’t need no “workarounds”, we can obtain the current version number directly from the SCOM Console under “Help” -> “About”:
