I have a machine that is running arcgis but can't determine what version it is. The documentation I have found so far has been fairly sparse especially with regards to the linux server version of the software. Does anyone know a way to easily determine the version of arcgis from the command line?

Also if anyone has any good links to command line centric documentation for arcgis it would be appreciated.

Use the PatchFinder program.

You can find help on the arcgis page as well.

Don't think Patchfinder runs on Linux – tommysay Apr 1 '13 at 15:57
