I am trying to determine if users with Windows Desktop Search that may have indexing of Outlook enabled would show up as a client version in the Exchange System manager's "Client Version" column under Logons folder.
Does it show up as a Client Version? I see many different client versions and I'm not sure how to find what clients they are.

Thanks I'm not sure though if this will help me identify what application or process that's  running this "client version".

I tried listing everything in the Program Files folder on the C$ of the IP address I show connected, but I don't see anything with the same "Client version" # when comparing to all the files "File version" in the Program Files folder.

Which file do you check to determine what the Client Version will show up as? On forum says C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033 but I'm not sure what that's for

For example I ran the user monitor and it says one client is connected with version 6.0.7623.0 on IP address 10.1.70.101.
10.1.70.101 is an Avaya Modular Messaging server and I'm not sure how to find what file on the server is running at this version. Is it equivalent to the "File version" found in Windows Explorer?

Hi
the version info lists out the MAPI version. I am trying to find out a list of all mapi versions used by outlook.

it is equivalent to file version.
Avaya Modular messaging might be using Exchange to send out messages / email alerts or something - if you have something configured like that.
Like Fax Alert / UM etc.

I ran a system information for windows tool on the Avaya server and found the closest "process" to 6.0.7623.0 was:
exmgmt.exe      6.5.7623.0      Microsoft Exchange WMI Provider / Microsoft Exchange
Same as all running DLL's. 6.5.7623.0 on a bunch of Exchange-related DLL's that are loaded.

But I don't see a 6.0.7623.0 exact version

It looks like it's checking the version of C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\mapi32.dll on most of the IP's, however the client version in ESM will say 6.0.7654.12 where as the actual file version in Windows will say 6.5.7654.12. There's a .5 in place of the .0 in all of the servers I've checked so far.

It is checking the file version of

EMSMDB32.dll

Please confirm if the versions match from Exmon and actual file version.

thanks

The C:\Windows\System32\EMSMDB32.dll is the same file version as the C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\bin\mapi32.dll when I check the properties in Windows Explorer it says 6.5.7623.0.
However in ESM and Exmon and says this version is 6.0.7623.0.

Thanks for your response and helpful information.

As far as why the file versions are not exactly the same (on some) Client Versions showing in ESM, I'm going to assume it's a bug or way of displaying file versions I'm not aware of.
