How to determine the version and level of the Sametime Advanced Server

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can you find the version and level of the Lotus Sametime Advanced server that you are running?

Answer

You can examine the stadv_version.properties file to collect the version and level information. First, go to the following path:

For Windows


    C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\STAdvServer


For Linux
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/STAdvServer

Find the stadv_version.properties file and open it. There you will see the level and build.

An example of the file content is as follows:


    product=Sametime Advanced
    offering=Sametime8.0.1Advanced
    Level=8.0.1.0
    Build=20080609.2107

    Contents:
    product=Sametime Advanced
    offering=Sametime8.0.1Advanced CF1
    Level=8.0.1CF1
    Build= 20090113.0953

The following table also shows the possible values:

20090113.0953

Sametime Advanced

Sametime8.0.1Advanced_85

8.0.1_85

20100322.1656


Note:. There is no automatic installer from 8.0.1 to 8.0.1cf1 or 8.0.1 to 8.0.1_85 and the upgrade is done manually by following the steps included in the readme section of the download. Hence the stadv_version.properties will not be automatically updated with the new version. A copy of the file is included in the hotfix download and should be placed in the following location.

For Windows

C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\STAdvServer

For Linux
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/STAdvServer




To verify if the server is upgraded to cf1, please check the following, Check the ocpersistence.jar and polledcontainers.jar to see what their timestamps are and match up with the Build Date specified above.

If a few of the jars in the folder are of a certain date.

on Windows: C:\WebSphere\AppServer\optionalLibraries\rtc
on Linux: /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/optionalLibraries/rtc
