SharePoint 2016 Build Numbers

SharePoint Server 2016 was released on March 14, 2016. So let's try to track all the version numbers, Build numbers, and Issue lists. Another thing, with the release of SharePoint Server 2016, Microsoft discontinued the SharePoint Foundation Version and also stopped the separate Project Server. Now, everything is included in the Base Bits. So one product fits for everything.

Finding your Build Number

To find the build version of the SharePoint farm using Windows PowerShell,

  1. Open the SharePoint Management Shell
  2. Type the following command

    (Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion

Please read below for further explanation of each column,

  • Schema Version
    This version number you will see from central admin (home page or going to Central admin > System Settings > Manager Server in Farm) or you can get the same from PowerShell as well: (Get-SPFarm).BuildVersion

  • Build Number
    Now onwards, MSFT is not changing the schema version with every CU as they change the practice so this number represents the patch level where you are. You can get by going Central Admin > Upgrade and Migration > Check Product and patch Installation Status.

    This column will tell if Schema was changed or not for a specific CU

  • LPs
    This column will tell if they included the Language Pack fix or not.
