Ever wondered what FAST for SharePoint (FS4SP) version is currently installed? Ever checked if every server in the search cluster has the same version?

Check the version!

The best approach is – open “Program and Features” and check the version there:

With “View installed updates” you can even see if Cumulative Updates have been installed.

Please be aware that not all files are updated after a patch so the versions in other files or tools can be different.

The stale “version.xml”

If you stumble accross the\etc\version.xml (e.g. C:\FASTSearch\etc\version.xml) file you can see the version number – but its not updated even if you install SP1.

FAST for SharePoint versio.xml

Versions (incomplete, to be continued):

FAST For SharePoint Versions/Builds
Version Description
14.0.4763.1000 FAST for SharePoint RTM
14.0.6029.1000 FAST for SharePoint Service Pack 1
14.0.6029.1000 FAST for SharePoint Service Pack 1 with CU June 2011

As you can see there is no version difference between SP1 and CU June 2011.


Did I miss a version? Cumulative Updates anyone?



Update 1 (30.01.2012)

As mentioned by Dan in the comments its better to directly check Programs and Features. I updated the post, thanks Dan!
