Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) – How To Determine Service Pack Version

SharePoint Server 2007 (including MOSS 2007) or WSS 3.0

Correct Methods

Central Administration > Operations > Servers In Farm > Database Schema Version – You will see the Database Schema Version in the top of the screen and a list of servers with the version numbers listed in the relevant column against each server in the farm

Site Settings > Modify All Site Settings > Site Information > Database Schema Version – You will see the schema version of the site content database

Query the Versions table of the farm configuration database – The entries in this table will show the version number and the date it was applied to the farm

Misleading Methods – The following methods are documented all over the web, but your results may be misleading

IIS Web Site Properties > HTTP Headers Tab >  Custom HTTP headers box which displays a version number – This shows the build version of MOSS at the time the Virtual Directory [Web Application] was created, which is probably not what you’re looking for.

Add / Remove Programs – Select Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 > Click here for support information.  This will show the current version of the software installed on a WFE server, but it does not always update and may differ from other servers on the farm.  For better results, use the methods listed above instead.
