Exchange Server version confusion RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have Exchange server 2010 SP3 installed.

    The WindowsUpdate asks me to install Update Rollup 8-v2:
    Rollup 8-v2

    But I have installed Update Rollup 24 already:

    Update Rollup 24

    So I started to examine Exchange version and I discovered powershell "Get-ExchangeServer" returns 14.3 123.4:

    Get-ExchangeServer | select name, admindisplayversion
    Name                                                                                                AdminDisplayVersion
    ----                                                                                                -------------------
    Exchange01                                                                                             Version 14.3 (Build 123.4)

    Same in the EMC -> Server Configuration.

    The About Exchange Server dialog shows 14.03.0399.00:
    About

    Only the powershell "Get-Command ExSetup" returns correct version (Rollup 24):

    Get-Command ExSetup | ForEach {$_.FileVersionInfo}
    
    ProductVersion   FileVersion      FileName
    --------------   -----------      --------
    14.03.0419.000   14.03.0419.000   C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\ExSetup.exe

    So, is my Exchange Server only partially updated? Are some files still in the old version? It looks like Windows Update thinks so, if it wants to install the old patch ...

  • 123.4 is SP3 release but does not include the rollups.  Update is correct and proper way to check versions is by file version and you can find detailed build info here --> https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/new-features/build-numbers-and-release-dates?view=exchserver-2019

    Agree with Troy. 

    You may manually install latest Update Rollup 28 and see if the Windows update reminder still exists.

  • Thank you for valuable advice.

    However, after installing RollUp 28 Exchange still wants to install Rollup 8-v2.

    The version is correct:

    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-Command ExSetup | ForEach {$_.FileVersionInfo}
    
    ProductVersion   FileVersion      FileName
    --------------   -----------      --------
    14.03.0461.001   14.03.0461.001   C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\bin\ExSetup.exe
    But I did not say before: the Exchange is connected to WSUS. I discovered this: when in windows update I click "Check online for updates form Microsoft Update" then it does not find Rollup 8, but instead Rollup 29, which is not listed HERE  (yet).

    Oh! Thanks for your reminding! 

    Rollup 29 is just released on 7/2, maybe this article is not updated timely.
