Typically, if you need to discover the version of a piece of software, the convention is to go to Help | About.

Microsoft Forefront TMG is no exception, however TMG does not name the service pack or hotfix/rollup number in this information. TMG lists the full version and build number so to determine which Service Pack or rollup you have installed, consult this list of build numbers for Microsoft Threat Management Gateway:

Marc Grote and Karsten Henstrup also maintain a more comprehensive list of TMG, ISA and UAG versions.

It is also important to note that when a rollup or hot fix update is released, the information in Help | About is not necessarily updated. So the version being reported in the standard location may not be entirely accurate.

The most reliable way to discover the build number is to select the System node in the left hand side of the TMG Management Console and look at the version column.

Finding the correct TMG version number

Hat tip to Richard Hicks, Tom Shinder and Yuri Diogenes for pointing this out in episode 11 of From End to Edge and Beyond (mentioned at 29.19 in the video).

If you are also wondering whether TMG Standard or Enterprise edition is installed, this is clearly presented in the top right corner of the TMG management console.

Hope this helps!
