How to determine whether Exchange 2003 is running Standard or Enterprise Edition?

Reply 1)

We can find out which Exchange Version is running by using the event viewer. The following event id will get generated when exchange server installed.

Standard Edition: Event ID 1216
Enterprise Edition: Event ID 1217

Great. Any other ways???

Also if, under the servers Protocol container, you see an X.400 container, it has to be an Enterprise Edition

Just to elaborate my point
Click start -> Run -> Type regedit.
Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Find software, expand software
Scroll to find Microsoft and expand it.
Then expand windows followed by current version and then finally uninstall.
Locate the GUID key which tells you what version you are running.
Like on my VM it is F95DE19F-CF69-4b03-81B6-9ec050D20D3b which says the server running is Enterprise Full Packed Product.
If you select the above key it also gives you the details like Installation path, display name, publisher name, uninstall path. You can also right click and modify the path but this may land you in nasty trouble.

In addition to Jameel please find the link below. The GUID key also tells which xchange server is currently running on the system.

There is one more way, you can check the same from Exchange System Manager. Open Exchange System Manager and drill down it till Servers. Click on Servers and in right hand side Pane you will file the Exchange Servers List there you will find whether Exchange 2003 is running Standard or Enterprise Edition
