Parsing @@Version output question


I am using Powershell 2.0 with SQL snapin loaded and trying to get the SQL server Version, version number and Edition.

$ver = Invoke-Sqlcmd  -ServerInstance 'ServerName\InstanceName' -Query 'select @@version'

Column1 : Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (RTM) - 10.50.1600.1 (X64)
            Apr  2 2010 15:48:46
            Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation
            Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.2 <X64> (Build 9200: ) (Hypervisor)

My question is, how do I parse this single string output of four lines into

$SQLVersion = Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
$SQLVerNum = 10.50.1600.1
$SQLEdittion = Standard Edition (64-bit)
$Buil = Build 9200

I am assuming that i should be using RegEx, but not really getting anywhere (especially because I cant figure out how to look at a separate line

  • This code turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

    Just needed to change $ver to $ver.column1 and it worked perfectly for all versions of SQl Servers that I was able to connect to.

    $SQLEdittion = [regex]::match($ver.column1,'\n\s+(.+)\son').groups[1].value
    $SQLVersion = [regex]::match($ver.column1,':\s([^(-]+)').groups[1].value
    $SQLVerNum = [regex]::match($ver.column1,'\d+(\.\d+){3}').value
    $Build = [regex]::match($ver.column1,'Build \d+').value
