I have a set of SQL databases from a SharePoint environment.  I do not have any of the web files.

I am trying to determine the version of the SharePoint database.  Does anyone know how to write a SQL query to do this?

select * FROM [SharePoint_Config].[dbo].[Versions]
WHERE VersionId = '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'

Then look up the version in http://www.toddklindt.com/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=346

This query should work. If your Sharepoint database name is not "Sharepoint_Config", select the appropriately named config database.
SELECT VersionId,
       Version,
       Id,
       UserName,
       [TimeStamp],
       FinalizeTimeStamp,
       Mode,
       ModeStack,
       Updates
       Notes
FROM   Sharepoint_Config.dbo.Versions
WHERE  VersionId = '00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'
ORDER BY Id DESC

Open in new window

The first record will be your most current version (if they have changed).

Thank you guys.  I am getting version 14.0.4762.1000, which I believe is SharePoint 2010.  Could someone confirm this?
