Content Server Build Numbers

Here is a list of build numbers for the Content Server dating all the way back to version 5.2.5.  I have listed the OS/database platform combinations I can confirm.  I suspect in most cases, the build numbers are the same across all OS/database combinations.  However, there are some interesting anomalies,  for example: v5.3 has a separate build for Sun5/Oracle.  My guess is that the 5.3.0.115 code line was recompiled to address a bug/patch in either Sun5 or Oracle.  Then there is the discrepancy with v6.0 and v6.5.  These build numbers vary greatly for identical versions and platforms.  What’s going on here?  I have no explanation (or guess) for these anomalies, but am very curious.

The table is missing a few entries (e.g., 6.7, and 5.2.5 SP3) as well as some OS/database combinations. If you can help fill out the table I would appreciate it. Send me your confirmed build numbers and OS/database combinations and I will update the table.  (The easiest way to determine the build number of your Content Server is to look at the first few lines of the server log.)

UPDATE:  Here is a link that explains version numbers, patch numbers, and build numbers for Content Server 6.5 SP2 and above:  https://support.emc.com/kb/116462

This is the general heuristic for “decoding” the version numbers.

6.7.1100.0181

About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.

    Great idea!

    I have a 6.5 SP3 (Oracle) SUSE Linux system that we patched (Patch 11, I believe) in order to migrate from FAST to xPlore.
    “version 6.5.0.355 SP3P1100 Linux.Oracle”

    Alternate/enhancement to reading the server log file:
    the EXECUTE SHOW_SESSIONS command will report the version of each client connected to the repository.
