I have several servers running MS SQL Server 2008. How do I verify what patch level its running? If I go into add remove programs there is no version listed for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 but there is a version for all other things listed as MS SQL Server 2008 such as Browser, Native Client, extt. all those versions are the same. Do those versions represent what version Im running? If I go in to Managment studio and go to help it gives me versions for several things but not SQL server
