Check the version of Lync Server components

I wish if Get-CsServerVersion returned the actual version of Lync Server. However, that's not the case. It always returns the base version of the Lync Server.

So how would you determine what's the actual version of the Lync Server? It's easy now... Thanks to Premal Gandhi. Run following command on the Lync Server to get the actual version.

Get-WmiObject -query 'select * from win32_product' | where {$ -like "Microsoft Lync Server*"} |ft Name, Version -AutoSize

Tim explains the couple of other methods as well in this blog... :)
