How to check SharePoint Farm Version

Today I ran across excellent new way to check Farm version for SharePoint 2013.

Simply add  /_vti_pvt/service.cnf to the site URL to retrieve FARM build number, e.g.

http://portal.domain.com/_vti_pvt/service.cnf

it will show:

vti_encoding:SR|utf8-nl

vti_extenderversion:SR|15.0.0.4505

15.0.0.4505  – this is farm version.

Same information is accessible in Central Admin site of course, but you don’t always have access to it and it is also more clicks :)
