Just parking this here. Most of the servers I maintain run CentOS, and occasionally I need to know which version of CentOS they’re running. For the servers I maintain, all of these works from the command line to return the version, though the RPM command¬†gives the most detailed information.

# rpm --query centos-release


# lsb_release -d


cat /etc/centos-release
