Best way to check the product version

  • 1.  Best way to check the product version

    Posted 01-26-2017 06:02 AM

    I'm trying to automate installations and upgrades of a few CA Products (Spectrum and CAPC). I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way checking the current installed version from the server where the product is installed. 

     

    Any suggestions of commands that I can execute from the shell or files that I can read to figure out the installed version?

     

    CA really should simplify that adding a --version to the products.

    Hello Renato,

     

    please post an idea for adding the --version switch across the board for consistency.

     

    and in the meantime:

     

    for Spectrum:

     

    first 2 numbers are the version, 3rd is the sp level, and 4th is the patch,

    the last number is just a build.

     

    verify version in

    <specroot>\install-tools\.history

     

    and for CAPM:

    here is a techdoc:

    https://www.ca.com/us/services-support/ca-support/ca-support-online/knowledge-base-articles.tec602318.html

     

    and some additional alternatives:

    PC: Help->About option from top right corner of UI

    DA/DC: .history file in InstallLogs directory

    DR: Simply launch the adminTools UI and note the version in the top title bar

     

    please let me know if this answers your questions.

    thanks,

    Rich Vernon
