Versions of MDS 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Do you know how to check MDS2012 version (build)? Also is there any changelog with list of all 2012 versions? How MDS versions are tied to SQL Server ones?

    We have environments with different SQL Server versions (11.0.3000, 11.0.3128, 11.0.2100) but I cannot find a relation between them an MDS versions. The 11.0.2100 env seems to be using newer version than the 11.0.3000 one..

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Mike,

    The MDS Configuration Manager does not show the currently installed version number directly. Be aware that MDS has a unique versioning scenario in which the SQL Server database engine installation does not necessarily match the MDS version. The version may vary when you compare the SQL Server installation to the binaries deployed in the MDS website and the MDS catalog schema version. 

    We can check the installed product version and schema version by using the following query in the MDS catalog:

    select * from mds.mdm.tblSystem

    Or check registry information: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Master Data Services\CurrentVersion
