I am gathering the version info of some SQL servers for an audit. Is there a way to get the same information as you would from running the Select @@version query without having to log into the SQL management studio?

-Thanks

Hi

You can use sqlcmd to do it from the command line.

Something like

sqlcmd -S myServer\instanceName -i C:\version.sql

where version.sql cotains the sql command

select @@version
go

This can obviously be done remotely as well assuming you have rights. If you need to specify a username\password then just add -U and -P switches.

thanks
Erik
