Finding the product version from the Linux shell

You can find the product version of the Catalogic DPX Master Server from the Linux shell if you are using one of the following releases:

  • The Catalogic DPX Master Server virtual appliance for VMware

  • The Catalogic DPX Master Server virtual appliance for Microsoft Hyper-V

  2. Run the following shell command to open the text file for the product version information:

    $ cat /opt/DPX/.swinfo

    The output is structured as shown:

    # This file is auto-generated by BR Installer
    #Please DO NOT modify this file
    swinfo.version=4.8.1
    swinfo.platform=Linux-amd64
    swinfo.type=master

  3. Run the following shell command to open the text file for the patch level information:

In this example, you are using the Catalogic DPX Master Server 4.8.1 patch level 500.

Finding the product version on Microsoft Windows

If you are using the Catalogic DPX Master Server on Microsoft Windows, you can find the product version information by opening the following files:

  • <product-directory>\.swinfo

  • <product-directory>\updates\patches.level

By default, <product-directory> is located in C:\Product Files\DPX. Open either file with a text editor such as Microsoft Notepad, and you can see the contents that are similar to the examples in the Finding the product version from the Linux shell section.

Attention! Do not change either text file.

Finding the operating system version of the Catalogic DPX Master Server virtual appliance

The Catalogic DPX Master Server virtual appliance series are bundled with the Linux operating systems. Use the following command in the Linux shell to check the operating system version:

$ cat /etc/os-release

To check the Linux kernel version information, use the following command:

$ uname -r

Tip. You can use these two commands in the Catalogic vStor virtual appliance too.
