Smile What OS/Version is Installed?


I am currently on a large network with several servers running different flavors of redhat linux. Some are running 7.3 while others are running 9.0, is there a command I can use to display what OS/Version of linux is currently installed on a server, without rebooting that server?

Thank You,
Karl

IIRC you can run:

$ cat /etc/version
