SharePoint Server 2016 released on March 14, 2016. So let's try to track all the version numbers, Build number, and Issue list. Another thing, with the release of SharePoint Server 2016, Microsoft discontinued the SharePoint Foundation Version and also stopped the separate Project Server. Now, everything is included in the Base Bits. So one product fits for everything.

Finding your Build Number

To find the build version of the SharePoint farm using Windows PowerShell:

1. Open the SharePoint Management Shell

2. Type the following command:


(Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion

Please read below for further explanation of each column:
  • Schema Version: This version number you will see from central admin (home page or going to Central admin > System Settings > Manager Server in Farm) or you can get the same from PowerShell as well: (Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion
  • Build Number: Now onwards, MSFT is not changing the schema version with every CU as they change the practice so this number represents the patch level you are. You can get by going Central Admin > Upgrade and Migration > Check Product and patch Installation Status.
  • Schema Change: This column will tell if Schema was changed or not for a specific CU
  • LPs: This column will tell if they included the Language Pack fix or not.
  • Release: This Column will tell the release month of the CU
  • Component: What SharePoint or Project component this CU is for. Most probably it will be SharePoint 2016.
  • KB: Link to MSFT KB Articles
  • Download Link: Download link for the CU
  • Issue Fixed: This will list all the issues fixed in this CU.
