Determine SP2010 & SP2013 edition & patching Level

Problem: You go to a client to work o the farm and you need to know what the production farm is running i.e. SP2010 version and patching.  This also applied to moving data and features from QA to production.

Todd Klindt keeps a list of SP & OWA version numbers for SP2013.

Initial Hypothesis:  Use PowerShell to determine which edition of SP2010 is installed and the patching level.

PS> (get-spfarm).buildversion
PS> get-spfarm | select Products
OR Central Admin > System Settings > Servers on farm
Update 27 July 2013: Build 15.0.4481.1005 is SP2013 with the PU March 2013 (This PU is required before you install any subsequent CU's).  Build 15.0.4420.1017 is SP2013 without PU or CU's.
SP2013 with PU march 2013 and CU June 2013 shown below:

I noted that your get-spfarm returns values of "Sharepoint Foundation 2010" and "Sharepoint Enterprise 2010". When I ran this on my install - it reports SP Foundation and SP Standard 2010. I believe I am only running Sharepint 2010 standard. Why am I seeing Foundation!!??

Hi Mike, If you have standard edition you will see the Products Guid for Foundation followed by Standard edition. The paid for versions are built on top of foundation. As in MOSS, WSS was like foundation which you then put paid for edition on. It is correct. The example above shows the foundation and Enterprise edition whereas yours will show foundation and then the standard edition product guids.
