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):

Another proof of the successful installation of the corresponding update is the presence of event ID 1036in the Application log:

 

Log Name: Application
Source: MsiInstaller
Date: 9/12/2015 12:39:05 PM
Event ID: 1036
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
Computer: SCOMMS01.test.local
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:

 

SCOM Version in the console prior the update to UR7

SCOM version in the console prior UR7

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”:

SCOM version in the console after updating to UR7

SCOM version in the console after updating to UR7
